Tennessee Weekly Notes

Tennessee went 6-1 on the week with a pair of run-rule wins over Wright State on March 5, followed by wins against Holy Cross, Campbell, Georgia Southern and College of Charleston during the Tennessee Tournament (March 7-9).

Senior Madison Shipman recorded a hit in each game to tie the single-season school record of 20 consecutive games with a hit - a record previously set by Kristi Durant from March 20, 2003, to April 13, 2003. The UT hitting streak record is 24 games over two seasons by Sarah Fekete (2004 and 2005 seasons).

Sophomore Rainey Gaffin tossed a six-strikeout, six-inning no-hitter against Wright State on March 5, in her first collegiate start as a pitcher. Gaffin is the first UT player to throw a no-no in her first start in the circle since Monica Abbott did so in 2004.

Senior Ellen Renfroe was 3-0 with a save on the week over five appearances and three starts. Renfroe tossed 24 scoreless innings last week and is on a season-high streak of 31 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run.

Tennessee hosts Western Carolina on March 11 at 5 p.m. before heading to Fayetteville, Ark., to open its SEC schedule with three games at Arkansas from March 14-16.
