March 6th, 2012 » filed under: Softball News, Top Story

For their efforts last week, sophomore pitcher Estela Pinon and freshman outfielder Alma Cortez were named ACCAC Pitcher of the Week and Batter of the Week respectively. Both players led the Roughriders to a 4-0 week to remain one game behind the league leader.

In two appearances, Pinon pitched 12 innings, allowing just 3 hits while striking out 24 batters. The University of Arizona bound Pinon walked just 3 hitters and allowed only 1 earned run in both victories. Cortez had a great week at the dish going 7 for 14 and scoring six runs.

YC will be in action Tuesday, March 6th playing host to Arizona Western College and then on Saturday, March 10th a battle for first place will be on the line when conference nemesis Pima Community College comes to town. Both doubleheaders will be played at Bill Vallely Field in Prescott beginning at 12:00 PM.
