Bitzer named Pitcher of the Week for second week

For the second week in a row, Seminole State College's Hope Bitzer (right) has been named the Florida Community College Activities Association's (FCCAA) Softball Pitcher of the Week.

The sophomore from Longwood went 4-0 last week and held opponents to a 0.54 earned run average.

On April 6, she recorded two complete-game victories against Florida State College at Jacksonville, striking out 14 batters and allowing only nine hits and two runs. The Raiders defeated the Stars 5-0 and 3-2.

On April 10, the Lake Mary High School graduate picked up two more wins against St. Johns River Community College. She went the distance in the opener, striking out 11 batters and notching a 6-0 shutout. She then pitched five innings of relief in the nightcap, striking out six at the plate and leading the Raiders to a 4-3, nine-inning victory.

The games gave the right-hander her 200th strikeout of the season.

Bitzer, a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Third-Team All-American, was also named FCCAA Pitcher of the Week as a freshman. She has signed with Rollins College.

Seminole State's Raider softball team, ranked fifth in the state and 15th in the nation, closes out the regular season with home doubleheaders against St. Petersburg College on April 22 and Polk State College on April 24. For more information, visit the Raider softball home page.
