Terra Lowe has been named this week's Big South Pitcher of the Week along with a spot on the all-tournament team at the Bank of Hawaii Invitational.

Liberty pitcher Terra Lowe has been named this week's Big South New Balance Pitcher of the Week, and Lowe and Jessica Moore were both named to the all-tournament team honoring the seniors' efforts at the Bank of Hawaii Invitational hosted by Hawaii. Both players were significant contributors in Liberty's 3-1 record at the event, including wins over two Top 25 programs. 

Lowe (RHP, Chesapeake, Va.) posted a perfect 2-0 record with a 0.00 ERA and her second save of the year. Lowe's first victory of the week came in relief during Liberty's 4-3 win over No. 23/25 Hawaii, as the senior closed out the game by allowing a single hit in two scoreless innings of work. The following day, Lowe closed out the final 2 1/3 innings in Liberty's 4-2 win over Nevada, allowing two hits and striking out three to secure the save. 

The senior's final appearance was her best, as she scattered six hits in 6 2/3 innings of work to pick up the victory over No. 10/14 Baylor. The victory over the highest-ranked opponent Liberty has ever defeated, saw Lowe strike out a season-high seven batters. On the year, Lowe is tied for the team lead with a 5-2 record and ranks second on the squad with a 2.68 ERA and 32 strikeouts. 

Moore (OF, Chesapeake, Va.) finished the four-game tournament with a .600 batting average (6-for-10), as she led the team with three runs scored, three RBI, a double and a home run. The senior posted a 1.000 slugging percentage and hit safely in all four games. 

She was 1-for-2 with a run scored and a stolen base in Liberty's 4-3 victory over No. 23/25 Hawaii and 1-for-2 with a run scored in Liberty's 4-2 win over Nevada. The outfielder also was 1-for-3 against No. 25 California, collecting one of the team's four hits in the 1-0 setback. 

She capped off the week with a stellar performance in Liberty's win over No. 10/14 Baylor, as Moore was a perfect 3-for-3 with three RBI. She came within a triple of hitting for the cycle as she had a RBI single in the sixth, a double in the fifth and a two-run homer in the first. 

Lowe, Moore and the Lady Flames will continue to face some of the best competition in the nation this weekend when they travel to Louisville, Ky., to participate in the Louisville Classic. 

The tournament field includes host Louisville, a preseason Top 25 NFCA team, No. 7 Northwestern, No. 9 Michigan and with No. 25 California, who nipped Liberty, 1-0, at last weekend's Bank of Hawaii Invitational.
