program history. The Kentucky signee pitched 246 innings and totaled 401 strikeouts. She pitched 12 nohitters and 31 shutouts on the way to a 36-4 pitching record with an ERA of 0.45. She was the Gatorade softball player of the year for Tennessee.

"I did a couple of fist pumps when we won the state tournament. I usually always do that when something exciting happens. It wasn't all crazy or anything. "
