ORLANDO (UCFKnights.com) – UCF Softball starting pitcher, Alea White, was named American Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week after her performance over the weekend.

White appeared in three games in the Knights Classic, hosted at the UCF Softball Complex, and wrapped up the weekend with a 3-0 record. The junior threw her first career no-hitter Friday night to start the weekend and broke her single-game strikeout record fanning 12 Coastal Carolina batters.

Overall, White is 5-3 on the season with eight appearances and six complete games. UCF is 9-4 on the season and 7-2 at home.
