MSU's Tanner, Mooney Named Players of the Week

Midwestern State's Brittney Tanner and Mallory Mooney were named Lone Star Conference North Division Players of the Week Tuesday afternoon when the league announced its weekly honors.
 
Tanner, a senior from Burkburnett, delivered a pair of two-hit shutouts of No. 2 Angelo State and No. 15 West Texas A&M while leading the third-ranked Mustangs to an LSC Crossover title last weekend in San Angelo to gain top pitching honors.
 
The right-handed starting pitcher has allowed just two runs in her last eight starts for a 0.28 ERA over 50 innings with 67 strikeouts and 12 walks.
 
Tanner posted a 3-1 mark allowing one earned run on six hits in 18 innings with 27 strikeouts and four walks for a 0.39 ERA during last weekend's tournament. She bettered her league-leading ERA to 0.98 while improving to 21-3 on the season.
 
Mooney garnered top hitting honors after hitting .438 with five doubles and five RBIs during LSC Crossover play last weekend.
 
The junior third baseman from Mesquite connected on a two-run double in MSU's 8-0 win over No. 2 Angelo State Friday before driving in her 100th career run later in the afternoon on a sacrifice fly during a 9-2 victory over Abilene Christian.
 
Mooney hit a pair of run-scoring two-baggers against Texas Woman's on Sunday before closing the weekend with two more doubles against Tarleton State.
 
She handled each of her 15 chances at third base flawlessly and hasn't committed a miscue in her last 11 games at the hot corner.
 
Midwestern State returns to LSC North Division play with a three-game set at Southwestern Oklahoma this weekend in Weatherford. The teams play a single game at 3 p.m. Friday before locking up in a doubleheader Saturday beginning at 1 p.m.

Mustangs Place Trio on All-LSC Crossover Team

Midwestern State placed three players on the Lone Star Conference Crossover all-tournament team.
 
Senior pitcher Brittney Tanner (3-1, 0.39 ERA), junior third baseman Mallory Mooney (.438, 5 2B, 5 RBI) and sophomore outfielder Megan Chartier (.412, 6 R, 6 SB) each gained honors on the 18-member squad.
 
The Mustangs were one of three LSC North Division teams to notch a 5-1 record, but claimed their second consecutive LSC Crossover title by taking the first tiebreaker of runs allowed.
MSU allowed five runs in the tournament to East Central's nine and Central Oklahoma's ten.
