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 week of April 8-14, as selected by the league's sports information directors. This is the second straight weekly award for Mahsem and the third of her career.
Mahsem, a senior right-hander, went 3-0 in the circle as the Warriors posted a 3-1 mark in NACC play last week. She twirled the first perfect game in program history April 8 as WLC topped Edgewood, 12-0, in a contest that had been suspended due to inclement weather the day previous. Mahsem followed that up with a complete-game shutout in game two against the Eagles.
She then tossed another complete-game shutout April 13 in a 1-0 win at Benedictine. Overall, Mahsem scattered 10 hits and a pair of walks during the week while striking out 16. She had not allowed a run in 37 1/3 straight innings in the circle. Offensively, Mahsem had four hits, including a double, a solo home run, and four RBI.
Mahsem and the Warriors are scheduled to host Lakeland today at 3:00 p.m. in a NACC doubleheader at Neumann Family Field.
