After helping Auburn secure its first series win at Tennessee since 2002, Tannon Snow earned SEC Player of the Week honors.
Snow slashed .667/1.889/.700 in the series to help the Tigers secure the series victory with two wins. She finished the series with six hits in nine at bats, three home runs, seven RBIs and four runs scored. Snow is currently on a 15-game on-base streak, which is a career-high and has tallied a hit in 17 of the last 21games.
Snow had a career night in the first game of the series going 4-for-4 at the plate with two two-run homers and seven RBIs. This was Snow’s second game of the season with two home runs, with the first coming against Furman on Feb 17. The four hits and seven RBIs also marked a career high for Snow.
"I thought Tannon played, all-around, exceptionally well," said Auburn head coach Mickey Dean. "She was a mainstay for us on defense — making some great plays — but she was also consistent (at the plate) the entire weekend. She had a great first game, with the seven RBI, but just had a great series hitting the ball throughout the entire week. She seemed extremely comfortable the entire weekend, which was nice to see.”
Snow’s career day made her the first Auburn player with a seven-RBI game since Kasey Cooper did so April 17, 2016, against Arkansas. She was also the first Auburn player to finish with four hits in a game since Kendall Veach had four Feb. 8 against Tennessee State.
During the second game of the series, Snow marked her 100th career collegiate hit after a solo home run in the second inning. She added another hit during the next game to push her total to 101, and 71 as an Auburn Tiger. She had 28 at Washington before transferring.
Snow will be back in action Friday as Auburn plays the first game of its three-game series against South Carolina. The game is set to begin at 6 p.m. CST at Jane B. Moore Field.
