WILMINGTON — Danielle Monnier closed out her record-setting career with the Wilmington College softball team by being named Ohio Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week.
Monnier, a Houston High School graduate, ended her career by winning both games of a doubleheader against Mount Union. By winning both games, she set a new school record for victories in a season with 13.
In a combined 14 innings against Mount Union, Monnier allowed just one unearned run on 10 hits, while recording 12 strikeouts.
“It was a phenomenal pitching performance, and it was amazing to watch,” said Wilmington head coach Beth Floyd.
Monnier leaves Wilmington as the career leader in wins and strikeouts, while holding the top three single-season marks in strikeouts and the top two seasonal performances in wins. She also has the single-season record with the 1.45 ERA she posted last season.
