Fuzzard reached base in 14 of her 16 plate appearances last week and had a 1.500 slugging percentage. Her five RBIs last week extended her SoCon-best career total to 197.
The Lady Mocs will be back in action Tuesday when they will host on Tennessee Tech in a non conference matchup. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Jim Frost Stadium at Warner Park.
