Pitt's softball team has struggled a good bit this season but still sits five games over the .500 mark and is 21-16 on the year. That's in part due to winning their last four games, which included a sweep of Virginia Tech last weekend.

Over that stretch, shortstop/infielder McKayla Taylor has been on fire. She hit a home run in each of the four games (four of her six hits were long balls) and she had a total of seven RBI and scored six runs while batting .400. For her efforts, she was named as the ACC Player of the Week.

At only 4-11 in conference play, Pitt has a long way to go to move up drastically in the standings. But they also have a good opportunity to begin that climb with a series against Syracuse (19-15 / 3-9 in conference) this weekend.
