IPFW's Cronin Named Top Performer by NFCA

IPFW's Courtney Cronin added another honor to her Summit League Pitcher of the Week award.  Cronin was named one of the five Top Performers by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association after recording her second and third-straight shutouts with a streak of 19 consecutive scoreless innings for the week and 24-straight on the season. For the week, Cronin fanned 22 batters, while yielding five hits, no runs and five walks in 19 innings of work for a perfect 0.00 ERA and held her opponents to a tepid .081 batting average.  Her Pitcher of the Week honor marks the fifth time in league history that an individual has earned both Pitcher and Player of the Week honors in the same season as she was named Player of the Week on March 5.
