BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – EKU senior Hayley Flynn has been named the Ohio Valley Conference Pitcher of the Week, the league announced on Monday.

Monday’s selection marks the second time this season Flynn has received the honor.

Flynn was the instrumental for the Colonels over the week, logging a complete game shutout against Northern Kentucky University last week, allowing just two hits from the Norse while striking out nine.

The senior kept her momentum into the weekend, logging her second straight shutout in EKU’s 2-0 victory in game one at Morehead State. She finished with 14 strikeouts in 11 and one-third innings on the mound, while giving up just eight hits for the three-game series at MSU.

Flynn, a native of Chandlersville, Ohio, entered the weekend ranked 12th in the nation in wins. She is ranked 26th nationally and leads the OVC in strikeouts (131).

The Colonels (26-6, 10-0 OVC) will look to continue their undefeated record in the conference on Saturday at Eastern Illinois University.
