Freshman Danielle Karacson of the Francis Marion University softball team has been named the McDonald's Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of April 8-14, 2019.
The Florence area McDonald’s Owner/Operators are proud to support the Francis Marion Student Athlete of the Week! Go Patriots!
Karacson batted .429 (9-for-21) for the week with four runs scored, two doubles, a triple, and five RBIs as FMU went 4-2 across its six Peach Belt Conference games.
On Saturday, the freshman outfielder tied a school record with five hits, going a perfect 5-for-5 at the plate as the Patriots knocked off conference-leading Columbus State University 12-9 in the second game of a doubleheader.
She is now batting .317 for the season, and is tied for fifth in the Peach Belt with 11 doubles.
Francis Marion (28-17, 7-9) concludes its regular season this week with a trip to face local-rival UNC Pembroke on Tuesday (April 16) at 3 p.m., and then a return to Florence on Saturday (April 20) for a Senior Day twin bill against Lander University at 1 p.m.
