POPLARVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

Pearl River Community College sophomore Halle Melone was honored as Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges’ Softball Player of the Week after delivering in the clutch to help the Lady Wildcats advance to the JuCo state tournament.

Melone, a Moore, Okla., native, had two doubles and a single and drove in five runs as PRCC downed Copiah-Lincoln Community College 11-5 in Wesson, then added three more hits, two singles and a walk-off, grand-slam home run in the bottom of the eighth inning, as PRCC swept the best-of-three series from the Lady Wolves with a 7-3 victory.

Moore, a transfer from the University of Southern Mississippi, enters the weekend hitting .364 with six home runs, seven doubles and 52 RBIs.

PRCC will open the double-elimination state tourney with No. 1 Itawamba Community College at 4 p.m. Friday in Fulton.
