Eryn Gould Named MVC Newcomer Of The Week


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.
