Forest, Va. -- The Old Dominion Athletic Conference named University of Lynchburg senior pitcher Taylor Belknap (Arden, N.C.) its softball pitcher of the week, the ODAC office announced Monday.

It is the first-career ODAC weekly honor for Belknap, who tossed four scoreless innings to earn the Hornets' first win of the season at Methodist Saturday.

The right-hander allowed just five baserunners over four innings -- three hits and two walks -- and struck out six Monarchs in her season debut. (Note: A scoring change late Tuesday changed an error originally charged to the Hornets to a hit, altering Belknap's final line.)

Lynchburg won the opener, 11-0 in 5 innings, and completed the sweep with a 9-1, 5-inning victory on the back end of the doubleheader.

Belknap is Lynchburg's first ODAC pitcher of the week since Hope Johnson and Conner English earned the honor in back-to-back weeks Feb. 23 and 15, 2015.
