Buena Vista freshman softball pitcher Jenna Falline (Newell, Iowa/Newell-Fonda) has been named this week’s Iowa Conference Pitcher of the Week, for the period ending March, 31.
With the honor, she becomes the program’s first player to earn any weekly conference honors since Brandi Sykora was named the Player of the Week back on April 9, 2006.
In four outings (all starts) during the team’s spring break trip to Clermont, Fla., Falline posted a 2-2 record which included her first two career complete-game shutouts. One of those triumphs was a 1-0 upset victory over No. 14 Carthage College. She also got the start and pitched 4.2 innings of a wild 17-14 upset of No. 6 Eastern Connecticut State before picking up her second complete-game shutout during a 1-0 BVU win against Carleton.
Falline is 5-3 overall this season with the Beavers sitting at 9-9 as a team. BVU returns to the field this afternoon when it opens Iowa Conference play with a road doubleheader at Coe College beginning at 3:00pm.
