Ashley Named the NJCAA Pitcher of the Week

Joe Denoyer - March 28, 2018 12:10 pm

Seward County’s sophomore ace pitcher Monique Ashley has been named the NJCAA Pitcher of the Week for her performances from March 19-25. It marks the first time this year that a Seward County athlete has won the National Player of the Week Award and the first time since 2011 that a Lady Saint has been named a NJCAA Pitcher of the Week.

Ashley continued her tear through the Jayhawk Conference, pitching two complete shutouts while allowing just four hits and striking out 26 batters in her starts. She has now struck out at least ten batters in each of her last four starts. She also picked up her first save of the season, clinching the second game against Barton, striking out the final out. She currently sits at 6-0 in conference play with just nine hits, zero runs against and 66 strikeouts, while allowing an opponent batting average of just .074.

The Lady Saints travel to El Dorado today for a 2:00 p.m. double header against the Butler Grizzlies in a battle of first-place teams. Ashley will take the mound in game one for Seward.
