Crum, a graduate of Dutchtown High School (La.), was selected Co-player of the Week along with Itawamba outfielder Courtney Roberts in a vote by league sports information directors. Both players will be nominated for the national player of the week award that will be announced later this week.

Crum went 8-13 at the plate with 14 RBIs, two homeruns, and two walks in a 2-2 week for the Lady Wolves. Her batting average for the week was .615 and she struck out once. Crum put Co-Lin ahead of Itawamba in extra innings with a 3-run homer before the Lady Indians came back in the bottom of the inning to take an 8-7 win. Crum finished with six RBIs in that game. Later in the week, against Mississippi Delta, Crum hit a 2-run homer in game two and a 3-run double in game one.

Crum and the Lady Wolves return to action on Thursday, Feb. 12 when they travel to Moorhead for a 1 p.m. start of the doubleheader with Mississippi Delta.
