Perryman garners NFCA Second Team All-America honors
Sophomore pitcher Hannah Perryman of the University of Missouri–St. Louis softball team has been named a Second Team All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA).
Perryman, a criminology and criminal justice major, earns All-America honors for the second straight season after being selected to the third team as a freshman.
A two-time GLVC Pitcher of the Year and two-time First Team All-GLVC selection, Perryman led all of NCAA DII in total strikeouts with 408, the 11th most in a single season in NCAA DII history. She also paced the nation with 13.5 strikeouts per seven innings, the fourth best figure in NCAA DII single season history.
Perryman was 29-6 in the circle with a 1.19 ERA and limited opponents to a .143 batting average. Her ERA ranked ninth nationally, while the 3.51 hits she allowed per game were fourth. Perryman also ranked seventh nationally with 10 shutouts and was fourth in victories.
She recorded three no-hitters during the season, including one perfect game in an 8-0 victory over Ohio Dominican in the NCAA Midwest Regional #1. Perryman also tied an NCAA single game seven-inning record with 20 strikeouts in a 2-0 win at Drury on April 5.
Perryman helped the No. 6 nationally ranked Tritons to a program-best 49-8 record and a spot in the NCAA Midwest Super Regional.
