MARSHALLTOWN — Former Ottumwa Bulldog Sarah Wilson has pitched her way to her second Iowa Community College Athletic Conference honor of the season. The Marshalltown sophomore has been named the CCAC Softball Pitcher of the Week after posting a 4-0 week for the MCC softball team.
The Tigers posted a 5-1 record last week as Wilson appeared in all five of the wins, picking up four victories of her own to improve to 12-7 on the year. Wilson’s biggest win of the week came on Wednesday as the Tigers defeated No. 15 Des Moines Area Community College 5-4. Wilson tossed a complete game, including a scoreless sixth and seventh innings to hold off the Bears for the upset.
On Friday, Wilson threw a complete game, seven inning shutout, her second of the season to give the Tigers a 6-0 win at home over Southeast Community College. In the win, Wilson recorded a career-high 15 strikeouts while allowing just one hit and one walk. The sophomore pitched three scoreless innings of relief in game two against Storm that saw the Tigers win 10-2.
Wilson bounced right back on Saturday to pitch back-to-back complete game shutouts against conference foe Iowa Lakes Community College. Wilson struck out 11 batters on the afternoon and allowed just three hits between the two games.
Wilson currently ranks third among all NJCAA Division II pitchers with 153 strikeouts. Over her last 23 innings, Wilson has not allowed a run, lowering her season earned run average to 2.47.
