Wernet tabbed TicketSmarter WAC Pitcher of the Week


DENVER – After a dominant week in the pitching circle and accounting for four of Tarleton’s five wins on the week, Julia Wernet has been named the TicketSmarter Western Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week.

This is the first weekly conference honor for the Tarleton Softball program as a member of the WAC and the first in Wernet’s career.

Wernet earned wins in each of her last four decisions while striking out 17 batters in five outings last week. On Wednesday against Prairie View A&M, Wernet came on in relief with one out and the bases loaded. She escaped the jam and then went on to pitch the final 4.0 innings and helped the Texans pick up their first Division I win. Wernet also collected complete-game victories over Incarnate Word and Stephen F. Austin in which she allowed just one run in each game. To top off her week, Wernet struck out a career-high 10 batters on Friday against UIW.

Wernet and the Texans have picked up a single game in Abilene Wednesday at 6 p.m. against ACU. This weekend, Tarleton will travel to Ruston, Louisiana for four games against La Tech and Baylor.
