Pittsburg State senior Tiffany Brown has been named the AstroTurf MIAA Hitter of the Week, the league announced on Tuesday (Feb. 18) afternoon.

Brown hit .500 (8-for-16) in the Gorillas' opening weekend at the Eight State Classic hosted by Arkansas-Monticello in Bentonville, Ark. The Catoosa, Okla. native hit five home runs on the weekend, including two each against Upper Iowa and William Jewell.

Brown reached base safely in each of the Gorillas' six games and had hits and scored runs in five of the six. She scored nine total runs and recorded 12 RBI. She also had a double, four walks, two stolen bases and was a hit by a pitch. 

Agaist Upper Iowa, Brown went 3-for-3 with four runs scored, six RBI, two home runs and a stolen base. She added another home run in Friday's (Feb. 14) game against Minnesota State-Mankato. Brown added her final two home runs of the weekend in the extra-inning win over William Jewell on Sunday (Feb. 16). In that game, she went 2-for-3 with two runs scored, four RBI, two home runs and a walk.

Brown finished the weekend with a 1.500 slugging percentage and a .591 on base percentage. The verstile player fielded three different defensive positions for the Gorillas on the weekend, right field, pitcher and first base, and came away with a perfect fielding percentage.

Brown now has 34 career home runs, putting her third on Pitt State's all-time list and just four from second place. She is the only player in school history to have hit two home runs in a game four different times in her career.

The Gorillas finished the opening weekend with a 4-2 record. The team will play its home opener on Saturday (Feb. 22) at 2/4 p.m. against Arkansas Tech at the Pitt State Softball Complex.
