Thursday’s game marked the 11th game of her senior campaign that she hasn’t conceded a walk in 18 total appearances which currently sits 21st in the NCAA for walks allowed per seven innings (1.04).

She concluded the weekend with two innings of work against the Eagles on Saturday morning. Her two innings of work earned her the first save of her senior year, third of her career.
