MILWAUKEE (WLCSports.com) - Wisconsin Lutheran College's Abby Mahsem (South Milwaukee, Wis.) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Softball Pitcher of the Week for the week of April 1-7, as selected by the league's sports information directors. This is the second career weekly award for Mahsem and the first for a Warrior this season.
Mahsem earned two wins in the circle Saturday as the Warriors swept Rockford to extend their winning streak to four games. The reigning NACC Pitcher of the Year scattered three hits and struck out nine in a complete-game effort in game one as WLC won 2-0. Mahsem then pitched 6 1/3 shutout innings in relief with four strikeouts as the Warriors earned a 6-3 win in game two.
Mahsem and the Warriors travel to UW-Platteville Thursday for a 3:00 p.m. non-conference doubleheader.
