Awards mount for Washington pitcherJuly 10, 2006 · MT Media Relations
The 5-10 southpaw pitcher was also voted First Team All-State by The Seattle Times. Vander Lugt, who led Tumwater to a Class 3A State Championship in May, ended the season with a record of 24-1 with 239 strikeouts and 15 walks in 170 innings of work. The Olympia, Washington native surrendered only 10 earned runs all season and notched a total of 17 shutouts, including 11 out of her last 14 games. She closed out the year with a 0.41 ERA.
Vander Lugt will become just the second left-handed starting pitcher for the Blue Raiders in school history. She follows in the footsteps of former standout Jennifer Martinez who holds every career pitching record at Middle Tennessee.
