Harrison Central hurler Jordan Harris and the sweet-swinging Elizabeth Zorich of St. Patrick are the Sun Herald Players of the Week.

Harris is the Boys Player of the Week after throwing 10 scoreless innings in a 1-0 win over Gulfport that lasted 12 innings. Dillon Morgan hit a walk-off homer to clinch the victory for the Red Rebels and Clay Counts picked up the win on the mound.

Harris has proven accurate all season, striking out 26 and walking just four in 40 1/3 innings. The junior has an ERA of 1.39.

St. Patrick went 8-0 last week and Zorich played a big role in the dominating week for the Irish.

The senior is batting .550 with 36 RBIs and currently has a 20-game hitting streak.
