Tysinger Selected as a Third Team All-American by the NFCA


LOUISVILLE, KY -- Catawba College sophomore pitcher Carley Tysinger (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) added another post-season honor to her resume on Wednesday night as she was named a Third Team All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.  Tysinger became Catawba’s first softball All-American last year when she was named as a third team selection by Daktronics, which is voted on by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

The sophomore posted an 18-10 in the circle this season with a 1.29 ERA, which ranks 13th in NCAA II.  Of her 10 losses, seven were by a single run, including two 1-0 losses and a pair of 2-1 defeats.  Tysinger yielded 122 hits over 189 and two-thirds innings and her 4.5 hits allowed per game ranks 12th in Division II.

Tysinger fanned 293 batters on the season and walked 47.  Her 10.8 strikeouts per seven innings stands third in NCAA II.  She set the school strikeout record four times during the season.  First, she tied the mark of 14 then within a six day span in late March she posted games of 15 and 16 strikeouts.  Her final record came at the conference tournament when she fanned 27 batters in a 16-inning win, breaking the conference and NCAA II mark in the process.

In just two seasons, Tysinger has begun to move up on several Catawba career lists.  Her 43 wins is third all-time and her 14 shutouts is just one off the school mark.  Tysinger is second in career strikeouts with 617 and needs just 104 to break the existing school record.
