WSU pitcher honored by Horizon League


Wright State senior Ashley Sharp has been named the Horizon League Pitcher of the Week, conference officials announced Monday.

The Lakota West High School graduate threw back-to-back shutouts against IUPUI on Friday and Saturday.

Sharp blanked the Panthers on five hits in a 1-0 victory Friday at the WSU Softball Field, then threw a three-hit shutout in a 5-0 victory in Saturday’s rubber match.

The wins upped Sharp’s record to 7-10 while lowering her ERA to 3.07. Her ERA in league games is 0.56.

The Raiders (10-17 overall, 4-2 Horizon League) return to action Wednesday with a doubleheader at Northern Kentucky.
