Junior Tiffany Howard has been the breakout star of the young season so far. Howard currently leads the team with a .604 average and 29 hits.
In the Tiger Invitational two weeks ago, Howard hit three triples in three games, two coming against Mercer (2/14). With her two triples in the same game, Howard became the first AU player to achieve the feat since Myesha Finney in 2006.
Howard currently leads the team in multi-hit games (9) and is on a 13-game hitting streak.
