Huntington’s Carlie Thomas Strikes Out 15 in SFA Victory
For four years, Carlie Thomas was in the pitching circle leading the Huntington Devilettes to many victories including at state 3A championship. Now, she is a junior pitcher for the SFA Ladyjacks and Saturday she established a collegiate career record by striking out 15 in Tempe, Arizona. SFA defeated Creighton in tournament play Saturday afternoon 4-3. Thomas gave up 9 hits and 3 earned runs, but she was able to pitch out of trouble with her high strike out mark. Cadie Weaver from Splendora blasted a home run in the 6th which was difference in the game.
The Ladyjacks are 2-3 on the year and Carlie Thomas is a perfect 2-0 with an impressive 1.47 earned run average (ERA).
Next up for SFA will be a trek to Austin to take on perennial powerhouse University of Texas. However, as a freshman, Carlie Thomas blanked the #3 Lady Longhorns in Austin 1-0.
