University of Evansville freshman Eryn Gould was named the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week as the Purple Aces softball team went 2-1 in the Mardi Gras Classic in Lafayette, La.
 
“Eryn had a great start offensively to her college career,” UE head coach Mat Mundell said.  “She showed a lot of poise and approach at the plate.  We hope she continues to build off of this.”
 
The first weekend of play for Gould was a good one as she batted .600 while slugging 1.300 in leading the Purple Aces to a 2-1 record in the Mardi Gras Classic.  She had six hits in 10 plate appearances while hitting two doubles, a triple and a home run.  She had three RBIs and four runs scored while getting on base 63.6% of the time.  In the opener against Samford, Gould went 3-4 with three RBI and two runs.  
 
Against nationally ranked Louisiana, Gould posted a hit and scored a run in three appearances.  Sunday’s finale against EIU saw her go 2-3 with a run scored to wrap up her first week of action.
 
Next up for Gould and the Aces is a trip to the Black and Red Showcase hosted by the University of Georgia this weekend.
