LOS ANGELES – The BIG EAST Conference named Georgetown softball’s Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) to the Honor Roll on Monday for her play over the weekend. Hyson was named the Pitcher of the Week last week and once before to the Honor Roll this season.

Hyson, a junior, went 7-for-16 at the plate this week during Georgetown’s competition in the CSUN/UCLA Invitational in Los Angeles and Northridge, Calif. Hyson walked once in the tournament and recorded two runs batted in, to give her a team-best 14 RBI. The junior also stole her first base of the season against Grand Canyon on Fri., March 7. In 16 at-bats, Hyson only struck out once.

In the circle, Hyson (5-6) started three out of five games for the Hoyas in southern California. She threw 19.0 innings while surrendering 18 hits and 8 earned runs. On Sunday, the final day of the tournament, the junior made the start against No.4 nationally-ranked UCLA and only allowed four hits and two earned runs in the 3-1 loss. On the season, she has logged 68.1 innings with 56 strikeouts and a 2.05 earned run average. The junior is currently limiting her opponents to a .193 batting average.

Hyson currently leads the team in most offensive stats on the season including batting average (,375), on-base percentage (.478), slugging percentage (.554), hits (21), doubles (5), extra base hits (7), runs batted in (14) and walks (10).

The Hoyas went 0-5 this past weekend at the CSUN/UCLA Invitational but competed against stiff west coast programs across the three days at Matador Diamond (CSUN) and Easton Stadium (UCLA). Georgetown lost two games by less than two runs including a 3-1 loss to UCLA, a school which has 11 softball national championships.

The Blue & Gray will now gear up for a four-game weekend tournament in Hempstead, N.Y., hosted by Hofstra, on Sat., March 15 and Sun., March 16. Georgetown’s first game of the tournament will be against Fairfield on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. ET.
