Beeson collects GPAC Pitcher of the Week accolades

Concordia junior right-handed pitcher Amanda Beeson has earned GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Pitcher of the Week honors, the conference announced on Tuesday.

Beeson collects the weekly honor after racking up a career best 13 strikeouts as part of a seven-inning, three-hit shutout at Central Christian College (Kan.) in the Bulldogs’ 8-0 victory in game one of a doubleheader on March 20. With those 13 punch outs, Beeson took over the GPAC lead with 46 in 43.2 innings

The Waverly, Neb., native then went 3-for-3 at the plate in the second game of the doubleheader – a 17-4 thrashing of Central Christian. She also drove in four runs and scored twice.

As Concordia’s ace pitcher, Beeson leads the team in innings and has fired five complete games in seven starts. She carries and ERA of 4.52 on the season.
