BLUFFTON, Ohio - Junior pitcher Sarah Betts (Bryan, Ohio/Bryan) has been selected as the Heartland Conference's softball Co-player-of-the-week

Betts picked up the win in all four of the Beavers contests last week. Against Heidelberg Betts allowed only two hits over two games and struck out 12 batters. On April 9 in the team's HCAC opener vs. Hanover College, Betts allowed only five hits and struck out 17 batters.
"Sarah was very impressive in both outings. She pitched very well," head coach Holly
Spann said. "Even on Saturday when she didn't feel well she came in and got the job
done. The team's defense was also very solid as they helped back Sarah up on the week."
Betts posted a 0.00 ERA (earned run average) with 29 strikeouts in 22 innings pitched for the week. For the season Betts is 10-4 on the mound with a 0.74 ERA and 106 strikeouts. Betts currently leads the Heartland Conference in earned run average, opposing batting average, innings pitched, batters struck out, batters struck out looking and total wins.
The Bluffton University softball team (14-4, 2-0 HCAC) will be back in action this Friday, April 15. The team will host HCAC opponent Mount St. Joseph at Marbeck Field. First pitch for the contest is scheduled for 3 p.m.
