KCKCC's Leslie Ford named Jayhawk Pitcher of the Week


Leslie Ford’s stellar pitching over the past weekend earned her softball Player of the Week honors in the Jayhawk Conference.

Allowing just two earned runs in 27 innings, Ford was 2-1 as the Lady Blue Devils won 2-0 and 6-1 at Hesston and split at Hutchinson, losing 2-0 and winning 7-3.

Ford gave up just three hits, struck out eight and walked one in blanking Hesston 2-0.

After giving up six hits and the only two runs she surrendered over the weekend in the 2-0 loss to Hutchinson, Ford came back and pitched 5 2/3 innings of 3-hit relief in KCKCC’s 7-3 nightcap win.
