Wright State swept this week's Horizon League softball honors as freshman shortstop Hanna Floyd was named the Batter of the Week while junior Krystian DeWitt was selected as the Pitcher of the Week, it was announced Monday by the league office. 

The Raiders went 5-0 on the week, winning both ends of a doubleheader against Toledo on Thursday and then sweeping a weekend series with Detroit.

Floyd (Minster, OH/Minster) hit .467 (7 for 15) with two home runs, nine RBI and three runs scored in five games.  After singling in a run in the second game of the Toledo doubleheader, Floyd hit her first collegiate home run in the series opener against Detroit on Saturday, a three-run shot to left center.  She finished that game three for four with four RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base.

Floyd then keyed a seven-run first inning in the Detroit series finale on Sunday, smacking a two-run home run off the scoreboard in left, as she went two for four with four RBI altogether.

For the season, Floyd is hitting .282 with 13 RBI, five doubles and 13 runs scored.

DeWitt (Garden Grove, CA/Pacifica) went 4-0 on the week with a 1.03 earned run average in 20.1 innings, allowing just 15 hits and four walks while striking out 21 and holding the opposition to a .195 batting average.  Along with the honor from the league, she was also named the Horizon League Player of the Week by College Sports Madness.

In the first game against Toledo, DeWitt picked up the win as she allowed two runs in a complete-game effort, striking out five.  She then pitched another complete game win in the Detroit opener, giving up just three hits and a walk while fanning nine.

DeWitt earned the win in relief in WSU's 6-5 victory over Detroit in the second game, pitching 3.2 scoreless innings in allowing three hits with five strikeouts.  She picked up another relief win in the series finale with the Titan, again going 3.2 innings with two strikeouts.

This is the second Pitcher of the Week honor this season for DeWitt as she was also named on March 25.  On the season, she is 10-12 with a 2.24 ERA and 111 strikeouts in 150.1 innings.

Wright State (14-31, 9-9 Horizon) closes out the regular season this week with seven games.  WSU will host Miami in a doubleheader Tuesday at 4:00 before visiting Ohio State for a 5:00 twinbill on Wednesday.  The Raiders then head to Chicago for a three-game series against Horizon League co-leader Loyola, starting with a doubleheader Saturday at 1:00 Eastern followed by a single game on Sunday, also at 1:00.
