WESSON – Bailey Root, a freshman from Silsbee, Texas, earned MACJC Pitcher of the Week honors after her standout performances against Hinds and Coahoma last week. Root was 2-0 on the week with 12 innings in the circle. The freshman struck out 13 batters and gave up just one earned run on nine hits.

“I pitched really well this week, but with out my team and the work we have put in on our defense I would not have had the confidence to pitch as well as I did,” said Root. “In my eyes this is a team award because without them I wouldn’t be able to receive it.”

Root is 7-8 on the season and has racked up 80 strikeouts on the year.

“Bailey’s been pitching very well for us,” said Co-Lin head softball coach Allen Kent. “She gives us a chance to win pretty much every time she is in the circle…she is also a great teammate and is fun to be around.”

The honor automatically qualifies Root for NJCAA National Pitcher of the Week.
