Sigrest earns A-Sun Pitcher of the Week honors
Dolphin ace Sarah Sigrest was named the Atlantic Sun Pitcher of the Week Monday after going a perfect 3-0 last week with three straight shutout performances.
This marks the fourth time in her career that Sigrest has been named the conference “Pitcher of the Week” and the first time this season.
In her three outings last week, Sigrest struck out 22 batters in 21 innings without giving up a run for a perfect 0.00 ERA. She pitched with control only walking three batters during that span. Opposing hitters had a .185 batting average against her and managed to record just 15 hits over the three games with all of those hits being singles.
Sigrest, the reigning A-Sun Pitcher of the Year and the Preseason Pitcher of the Year, is now 7-3 on the season with a 2.02 ERA. She has struck out a total of 80 batters in 2012 in just 76.1 innings.
The Dolphins return to action on Wednesday when they host Delaware State for a double header at the JU Softball Complex scheduled to start at 5:00 pm.
