Rumley's Perfect Week Earns Her Ivy Pitcher of the Week Accolades
PRINCETON, N.J. - Sophomore southpaw Kristen Rumley (Katy, Texas) earns her second consecutive Ivy League Pitcher of the Week honor after going 3-0 last weekend with wins over Robert Morris, Quinnipiac and Maryland at the USF Invitational. The honor is the third of her career and marks the second consecutive week she has been named the league's top pitcher.
Rumley has taken her game to the next level in the pitcher's circle this season and it was on display last weekend. 1n 19.0 innings of work, the Texas native allowed just 10 hits with no runs and just three walks to go along with 20 strikes. Against Robert Morris, Rumley tossed 10 strikes, her first game in double figures this season and just two strikes shy of her career-high 12 and three short of the single-game record of 13. Against Quinnipiac, Rumley flirted with a no-hitter, allowing just one hit in the Big Green's 4-0 victory.
Rumley is making a name for herself in the Big Green record books and with her 51 strikes on the season, sits in fifth place on Dartmouth's all-time strikeout list with 202 Ks. She is one of just five players in program history to have at least 200 strikes. In her 54.0 innings of work this season she has a 7-1 record and boasts a 1.30 ERA. The sophomore also hasn't allowed a run in her last four appearances; a span of 25 innings and with her three shutouts over the weekend has pitched five career shutouts.
The Big Green are back on the diamond on Wednesday when they take on Rutgers and USF in single game non-conference action. Dartmouth will square off with Rutgers at 4:30 p.m. at the USF Softball Stadium and will take on the Bulls at 6 p.m.
