LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Westminster College’s Jazmyn Rohrer and Centenary College’s Anna Dunn captured this week’s Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division III National Pitcher and Player of the Week honors, respectively.
Senior right-hander Rohrer went 5-0 in six appearances and four starts in the circle, striking out 64 over 33.1 innings. The Purcellville, Va., native fanned a career-best 17 and allowed just two hits in a 3-2 win over Geneva, then struck out 12 and yielded four hits in a 2-1 victory at Thiel.
In her other two starts, Rohrer fanned 15 in a three-hit shutout of Grove City, and struck out 11 in a two-hit shutout of Washington & Jefferson. For the week, she allowed just four walks, including none over her last 19.1 innings. In the latest NCAA rankings (through Monday’s games), she ranks fifth in Division III in hits allowed per seven innings (3.5), seventh in strikeouts per seven innings (10.5) and 10th in both earned-run average and strikeouts.
Dunn, meanwhile, batted .615 with 11 runs, three doubles, five homers, four steals and 20 runs batted in. The Shreveport, La., native took over the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference lead this past week in RBI, average and home runs.
Her seven RBI in a wild 19-18 eight-inning loss to LeTourneau tied a conference record and set the school mark for RBI in a single game. She also recorded her first multi-homer game when she hit two in a 9-4 triumph over the University of Dallas.
