STAUNTON, Va. – Mary Baldwin University first-year softball player Lindsay Simmons has been named the USA South Softball Rookie Pitcher of the Week.
A native of Mount Sidney, Va., Simmons led the way with 4.1 shutout innings with four strikeouts, scattering just a pair of hits and recorded her first collegiate save against Randolph on Sunday. In addition to her performance in the circle, she went 3-for-5 at the plate with four walks and a run scored.
The Fighting Squirrels split with the WildCats on Sunday afternoon at the Randolph Softball Complex, claiming their first win of the season in game one, 7-5, before Randolph took the nightcap, 4-2.
