Robyn Wampler Garners CCAA Pitcher of the Week Recognition
LA JOLLA, Calif. – Robyn Wampler of the No. 23 University of California San Diego softball team has earned the title of California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Pitcher of the Week. The conference made its announcement on Tuesday morning.
Wampler was lights-out in three appearances against CCAA rival Cal State Dominguez Hills. In game one of the series, the sophomore came in in relief. Only allowing a lone single to the Toros, Wampler pitched the final two innings to capture the save and help the Tritons to a 4-2 victory.
In the second game of Friday’s doubleheader, Wampler picked up where she left off. Scattering four Toro hits across seven innings, the sophomore allowed just one earned run. Wampler’s teammates provided three runs in support, and she ultimately earned the win.
In the final game of the series on Saturday, Wampler recorded another complete game. Again, the Toros were only able to get four hits off of Wampler, who did not allow an earned run. Without giving up an extra base hit to Cal State Dominguez Hills in seven innings, the Berkeley native led the Tritons to a 4-1 win.
Wampler was in total control throughout the weekend. Across the 16 innings she pitched, Wampler only surrendered two walks while striking out eight batters.
This season, Wampler holds a conference-best 0.39 ERA (minimum 10 innings pitched). She has only allowed one earned run over 18 innings.
This is the second consecutive week that a UC San Diego pitcher has been recognized, as Alanna Phillips earned the award for her efforts last week. Wampler is no stranger to the honor, as she garnered four Pitcher of the Week accolades from the conference last year.
