Former Tucson High standout Carlie Scupin earned Pac-12 Freshman and Player of the Week honors for Arizona the conference announced on Tuesday. The 2019 Arizona High School Gatorade Player of the Year hit .438 with four home runs and 15 RBI to help lead Arizona to a 5-0 record at the Wildcat Invitational.

Scupin drove in 15 of Arizona’s 44 runs scored over the weekend, including a grand slam and two three-run shots. According to a release, only three other players in the Pac-12 have more than 15 RBI this season (three weeks), and Scupin reached the number in one weekend; she has 17 total this season.

Scupin had least one hit and at least one RBI in every game over the weekend, extending her active hitting streak to seven games and her active RBI-streak to six.

Scupin’s 44 career home runs at Tucson High are the most the city has seen in a generation.

This list will be updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who have gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but collegiate and professional recognitions. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS. If you are aware of anything I have missed along the way, please let me know.
