Softball's Hill Named NJAC Rookie Pitcher of the Week

Montclair, NJ (3/14/11) -  Freshman righthander Alex Hill (Parsippany, NJ / Parsippany Hills) was named the NJAC Rookie Pitcher of the Week as the league announced its first weekly softball honors for 2011.

Hill earns NJAC Rookie Pitcher of the Week honors after tossing a no-hitter in the first start of her collegiate career, an 8-0 blanking of Roger Williams during MSU’s Spring Trip to Florida. After pitching the final 1.2 inning of relief during the Red Hawks’ season-opener against Millikin, she surrendered no hits and just one walk in five innings of work while striking out eight for the first collegiate victory of her career.

Hill currently leads the NJAC in opposing batting average (.091).
