SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Western Carolina softball freshman first baseman Taylor Sigmon has been named the Southern Conference Softball Player and the league announced Monday. The selections are made by the Southern Conference office.
Sigmon hit .500 in the three-games against Georgia Southern last week, helping Western Carolina claim a series win over the Eagles. She had at least one hit in all three games including going 2-for-4 in the Catamounts' 7-2 game two win. In game three, Sigmon put a tight game out of reach when she hit her seventh homerun of the season, in the bottom of the sixth inning. The freshman went 2-for-3 in the third game scoring two runs and picking up two RBI. Sigmon was also part of two of the Catamounts three double plays they turned in the series over the Eagles.
Western Carolina will host Presbyterian College Wednesday in its final home doubleheader of the season. First pitch is set for 4 p.m.
