NEW PORT RICHEY -
THIS WEEK’S FEATS:
Morlan helped keep Gulf unbeaten with her arm and bat this past week. The junior notched two complete-game wins that included a 12-strikeout effort over Fivay. Over a three-game stretch, she combined to go 5-for-12 from the plate and drive in six runs.
Gulf’s ace, Morlan is 8-0 this year with a 0.29 ERA and a K-to-BB ratio of 5.8-to-1. She’s batting .370 and is second on the team with 10 RBIs.
The Buccaneers have advanced to the postseason only once in school history – in 2005. Morlan’s consistency on the mound may be enough to propel Gulf through the district tournament this year.
