JSU's Tiffany Harbin Earns OVC Honor

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – Jacksonville State's Tiffany Harbin has been named the Adidas Ohio Valley Conference Softball Player of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.

Harbin highlighted a record-breaking week with the program's first ever nine-inning no-hitter on Sunday, a 1-0 win that saw her strike out 10 and allow just three base runners, none past first base. She retired the last 16 batters she faced in the victory.

Harbin pitched a pair of complete games against the Lady Govs on the weekend and struck out 10 in each game to run her season strikeout total to 191, fourth most in JSU history and the most since 2006.

The Hazel Green, Ala., native started the week with a 12-strikeout performance in just five innings of a win over Tennessee State in which she allowed just two hits. In a complete game win over APSU in the series opener, Harbin allowed just three hits in seven innings. Opponents hit .077 against her on the week.

Jacksonville State returns to action on Wednesday with an Ohio Valley Conference doubleheader against Tennessee Tech. Game time is set for 3 p.m. at University Field and admission is free to all fans.
