TAMPA, FLA. March 1, 2021 – University of South Florida junior pitcher Georgina Corrick was named the American Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week, the league announced Monday. This is the second straight week Corrick (Sanford, Fla.) earned the honor.

Corrick wasted no time starting her weekend. On Saturday, she tossed seven shutout innings in the 6-0 victory over Florida Atlantic in the circle, striking out 17 batters along the way. In addition to her success in the circle, she helped her own cause in the batter’s box, hitting two home runs and driving home three runs during the game.

On Sunday, Corrick continued her success. She entered in relief in the first game of the doubleheader and earned the save after pitching two shutout innings. She remained in the circle to start game two, allowing only one run in eight innings while striking out another 17 batters for the second consecutive start.

In total, the Great Britain National Team member threw 17 innings and struck out 37 batters. She finished 1-1 with a save and tallied two complete games and a shutout, allowing only one run in the three appearances. At the plate, she hit two home runs, tallied three RBIs and crossed the plate three times.

USF softball continues its season on Saturday with a two-day, two-game set against Arizona. Both games will be broadcast on ESPN+. Due to virus mitigation measures and the size of the venue, fan attendance will be via team pass list only at USF Softball Stadium.
