Kelly Barnhill helped lead the Gators to a crucial series win against Auburn on the road last weekend. On Tuesday, Barnhill was rewarded for her efforts by being named the SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week, the conference announced.

Barnhill’s big weekend started with a complete game no-hitter on Friday that also saw Barnhill set the UF program record for strikeouts in a career.

The senior concluded the weekend with a two-hit performance on Sunday that clinched the series for the Gators.

In total, the Marietta, GA native tossed 17.2 innings and finished with a 2-1 record and a 0.79 ERA on the weekend.

For Barnhill, this is the fourth such honor this season and the thirteenth of her career.

Florida is back in action this weekend as they will complete the regular season schedule with a home series against Mississippi State. Friday night’s first pitch is scheduled for 6:00 PM.
