LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Bemidji State University softball senior earned her second weekly accolade this week after being named the Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Division II National Co-Pitcher of the Week.
The weekly honor marks the first time under the Rick Supinksi era that a member of the BSU softball program has been recognized with a national award. Yost was tabbed the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Pitcher of the Week earlier this week.
The Bemidji, Minn., native earns the national award after posting an unblemished 5-0 record in five appearances. Yost earned three shutouts in the circle including a perfect game against Minnesota Crookston, Mar. 30 complete with 12 strikeouts. Over the week, Yost posted a 0.29 ERA allowing just one earned run over 24.0 innings and earned 44 strikeouts while only walking one batter.
Yost earned co-pitcher of the week honor with Rockhurst University’s Bridgette Sappington who went 3-0 and also tossed the first perfect game in school history.
