Story from the University of Kentucky Athletics:
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky Softball pitcher Stephanie Schoonover won her first-ever Southeastern Conference weekly award Monday morning, being named the SEC Pitcher of the Week after her stellar performances this weekend.

Schoonover went 2-0 this week with a save added in, as she pitched 16.2 innings across three games. Schoonover pitched two complete-game shutouts against (RV) McNeese and No. 22 North Texas, including a no-hitter while setting a new school record with 18 K’s in a single game. The junior came in to record a save vs. Sam Houston State, where she struck out five batters in just 2.2 innings.

The 11 K’s for Schoonover were a new career-high for the Dothan, Alabama native on Friday before she shattered that and the school record Saturday night in her 18 strikeout no-no vs. the Mean Green. Schoonover allowed just two hits on the entire weekend and has put up a current streak of 11.2 innings without allowing a hit.

No. 15 Kentucky will play at Loyola-Marymount on Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET/Noon PT on the WCC Sports Network before making the trip into Palm Springs for the annual Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic over the weekend.
