Chamberlain Named MAC East Pitcher of the Week
Marshall-NC State Doubleheader Cancelled
CLEVELAND – The Mid-American Conference announced today that Marshall senior Sarah Chamberlain (Moses Lake, Wash.) was named the East Division Pitcher of the Week for her efforts at the Winthrop/Ringor Softball Invitational last weekend.
Chamberlain tossed a one-hitter in a 9-0 complete-game shutout of Providence on Saturday to garner her first career MAC Pitcher of the Week honor. The right-hander struck out four Friars en route to claiming the Thundering Herd’s third and final win at the Rock Hill, S.C.-based tournament.
Chamberlain is now 2-0 on the season and leads Marshall with two saves.
The award marks the second straight week that the league has recognized Herd hurlers, as junior Randi Nielson (Tucson, Ariz.) snagged MAC Pitcher of the Week accolades for her performance at the Ramada Marshall Spring Classic.
