Shelley, who’s batted leadoff in all 152 games game of her three-year career, batted.375 last week with a pair of two-hit games, giving her 12 multi-hit outings on the season.

Two of her hits were doubles, giving her six extra-base hits this season, matching her totals for 2012 and 2013.

After losing their first five games and 11 of their first 12, the Wildcats (15-23) have gone 14-12 and are tied for first place in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference’s Southern Division at 5-1.
