Press Release PSU:


Pittsburg State freshman pitcher Emmie Robertson has been named one of the three finalists for the inaugural NFCA Division II Freshman of the Year. 



Robertson, a native of Lamar, Mo., led the Gorillas to a runner up finish in both the MIAA regular season and the MIAA Tournament, earning MIAA Pitcher and Freshman of the Year honors. She is the first player in Pitt State history to earn conference Pitcher of the Year honors. Robertson posted a 26-10 record in her rookie season, tying the PSU record for single season wins. She broke a 13-year-old school record with 238 strikeouts on the season, which led the MIAA. She also led the MIAA with a 2.03 ERA, a .202 opponent batting average, appearances (40) and innings pitched (231.0). Robertson was named D2SIDA/Daktronics first-team All-Central Region and is now in contention for All-America honors. She ranks 15th in the nation for strikeouts and is the highest ranked freshman.

The other two finalists are Janessa Bassett, an outfielder from Dixie State and Cailah Niles, a catcher from Anderson.

The National Freshman of the Year trophy will be presented during a live ceremony at the Division II Championship/All-American banquet on Wednesday, May 20 in Oklahoma City.

Behind the collaboration between the NFCA and its Division II Head Coaches Committee, the award was created to honor the outstanding athletic achievement among freshmen softball student-athletes throughout Division II.

The Division II National Freshman of the Year award is voted on by the members of the NFCA's Division II All-American & Coaching Staff of the Year Committee.
