ATLANTA -- Megan Litumbe had an outstanding week at the plate to be the fourth-straight softball player to be named GSU Student-Athlete of the Week, powered by the U.S. Marines.
Litumbe hit three long balls in five games for the Panthers this week, becoming GSU’s all-time home run leader. She started off the week with a home run at Kennesaw State on Tuesday. No. 7 Auburn showed respect to Litumbe on Wednesday, as she reached base twice on a walk and a hit-by-pitch.
On Friday in Game 1 at Coastal Carolina, Litumbe hit her 42nd and 43rd career home runs, passing Ivie Drake to set Georgia State’s new career home run record. She finished with four RBI that game.
For the season, Litumbe leads GSU with 12 home runs, nine of which have come in the last 15 games.
