Former Yoakum pitcher earns second honor

Carmichael (11-6) continued mowing down opposing batters with her third and fourth straight two-hit shutouts in a four-game sweep of Howard Payne. She also recorded her first save of the season.

The senior left-hander now boasts a 1.47 ERA and has 76 strikeouts in 114 innings of work.
