JCJC’s Perque, Denton earn weekly honors

ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

Pitcher Karli Perque and catcher Faith Denton were recognized for their contributions during Jones County Junior College’s run to the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges’ softball crown.

Perque, who went 2-0 in the tournament against opponents ranked among the nation’s top 10, was named pitcher of the week by the MACJC as well as the National Junior College Athletic Association.

It marked the fourth time this season Perque had earned the MACJC’s pitcher of the week honor.

Denton, who hit .667 in the two games leading up the championship final, was named MACJC player of the week.

Perque, a University of Memphis signee, went seven innings in a 5-2 victory over 10th-ranked East Central Community College. She allowed two runs on three hits, walking two and striking out six.

She topped that effort with a seven-inning shutout of third-ranked Itawamba Community College, scattering six hits, walking none and striking out six in JCJC’s 6-0 victory.

Denton went 3-for-4 against Itawamba, with a triple and two singles and drove in two runs. She was 1-of-2 against ECCC with a single.

The fourth-ranked Lady Bobcats (46-3) won the MACJC title for the third consecutive season and sixth in the last seven years, topping Itawamba in the championship game 8-0 in five innings.

Madison Burge (15-1) allowed just two hits over five innings, walking none and striking out three. Emily Robinson got JCJC going early, hitting her ninth home run of the season in the first inning to give the Lady Bobcats a lead they never lost.

JCJC opens Region 23 play at 6 p.m. Thursday, taking on East Central (35-12) at the Itawamba CC softball complex.
