LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Behind perfect games, Missouri-St. Louis' Hannah Perryman and Tiffin's Kimmy Reynolds shared Louisville/Slugger NFCA Division II National Pitcher of the Week recognition, while Augustana's Jenelle Trautmann was named National Player of the Week.
Reynolds, a freshman from Lima, Ohio, was equally as impressive toing the rubber in three complete-game shutouts, including her first collegiate perfect game. Posting a 3-0 record, she fanned 24 batters, surrendered just four hits and held her opposition to a miniscule .059 batting average in 21 innings. In her perfect game, Reynolds mesmerized the Malone hitters by fanning 11 in her first outing of the week. She struck out the side in the third and only three balls left the infield during her performance.
The rookie righty followed that with a one-hit, nine-strikeout outing versus Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference foe Ferris State. Reynolds capped off her stellar week with a three-hit shutout (4K) of Grand Valley State, which came into the weekend atop the league standings. Her efforts helped the Dragons go 3-1 in conference play and move within a half-game of both Grand Valley State and Wayne Sate (Mich.) for first place.
