YUMA, AZ – For the first time this season, freshman pitcher Ashlee Rex (Bakersfield, CA) from the Lady Matador softball team has won the ACCAC Division-One Pitcher of the Week award.
“This is another great accomplishment for the entire team,” said AWC Athletics Director Jerry Smith. “This season has gotten off to a great start and to get accolades like this from our conference shows that everyone else is taking notice of how we are playing.”
AWC went 3-1 last week thanks to some strong pitching performances by Ashlee Rex. She recorded two wins last week against both Phoenix College and Paradise Valley Community College. Rex tossed 13 innings with an ERA of 1.07. In her two starts, she struck out a total of four batters and walked five.
The Lady Matadors will next be in action today (Tuesday) against the Pima Lady Aztecs in Tucson for a doubleheader. AWC closes out their week with four games in the Central Arizona College Tournament in Coolidge on Friday and Saturday.
