Salisbury's Kelsey Mills Named Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division III Player of the Week
Salisbury pitcher Kelsey Mills has been named the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division III National Player of the Week for the week ending March 22, the association announced Wednesday.
Mills was outstanding for the Sea Gulls, pithing back-to-back no hitters and propelling Salisbury to a 5-0 week and a No. 21 national ranking in the NFCA Division III Top 25 Poll.
The Frederick, Md., native threw 15 scoreless innings, did not allow a single hit, and struck out 23 batters in three games. In her no-hitter against Plattsburgh State Friday, she was one error away from a perfect game as she struck out nine batters in the complete game victory. Mills picked up her first save of the year on the same day against then-No. 23 Ithaca when she struck out one in one inning of work.
On Saturday, Mills threw her second no-hitter of the week and third of the season, as she struck out a career-high 13 batters and walked just one in seven innings against SUNY Geneseo. Mills also helped her cause against SUNY Geneseo as she went 1-for-2 at the plate with one run scored.
For the week, Mills posted a 2-0 record and now stands 5-2 on the season with a 1.30 ERA and 50 strikeouts.
