FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University senior left-handed softball pitcher Michaela Wolf has been named to another All-Region squad. This time the Littleton, Colo., native has been tabbed for the second-team Louisville Slugger/NFCA Southeast All-Region Team as the pitcher/utility player. This is the third consecutive year she has gained All-Region recognition.
At the plate this season, Wolf hit a team-best .395 with 18 runs scored, eight doubles, four home runs, and 34 runs batted in – the second highest total on the squad. She also owned a .521 on-base percentage, which ranked second in the Peach Belt Conference and 18th nationally.
On the mound, Wolf compiled a 22-9 pitching record with one save and a 2.13 earned run average. She completed 28 of her 31 starts and struck out 172 batters in 197.1 innings of work. She walked only 47 batters and opponents hit just .250 against her.
She is the only Patriot hurler in the history of the program to win 20 games more than once in a career – and she did it four times. She owns nearly all the FMU career pitching records, including wins (92), appearances (151), complete games (108), shutouts (25), innings (897.2), and strikeouts (755).
Francis Marion ended its season with a 36-16 record and earned the program’s second NCAA Tournament appearance in three years. The 36 victories equal the fifth-highest season win total in program history. FMU reached the championship game of the both the Peach Belt Conference Tournament and the NCAA Dahlonega Regional Tournament.
