Tori Beltz named MIAA/AstroTurf Softball Hitter of the Week

Fort Hays State junior Tori Beltz was named the MIAA/AstroTurf Softball Hitter of the Week on Tuesday for her efforts the week of April 21-27. Beltz helped the Tigers go 3-3 overall last week, which included a key conference doubleheader sweep of Nebraska-Kearney to help FHSU earn a spot in this week’s MIAA Tournament.

Beltz had a big week at the plate, hitting .412 with five extra-base hits (3 home runs, 2 doubles) and eight RBI. She went 7-for-17, but drew five walks and was hit by a pitch once. Adding a fielders choice into that mix, she reached base safely in 14 of her 23 plate appearances for the week and had an on-base percentage of .565 for the week.

Beltz had two, two-run home runs in the second game of a doubleheader at Northwestern Oklahoma State, the second plating the decisive runs in a 6-5 win. In the conference doubleheader sweep of Nebraska-Kearney, she had an RBI single in game one, part of a six-run rally for FHSU in the second inning of a 9-8 win, and then a solo homer and an RBI double in a 4-0 game two win. Beltz scored six runs for the week, half of them in the conference doubleheader sweep of UNK.
