ELMHURST, Ill.—The Summit League conference office has announced that Centenary softball player Stacy Whitmer has been named the league’s Pitcher of the Week. It is the second time this season that Whitmer has earned the honor and the fifth time a Ladies pitcher has been given the award overall this year.


Whitmer went 2-0 last week with victories over Northwestern State and Western Illinois. In three total appearances, she posted a 1.40 earned run average and held the opposition to a .143 batting average. She struck out 10 batters in 10 innings and surrendered just five hits on the week.


Whitmer and the rest of the Centenary Ladies (31-23) will wrap up the home portion of their schedule tonight when they host Northwestern State (8-43) at 5:30 p.m. The game can be heard live on www.GoCentenary.com.
