Virginia Pitcher Named to All-State Team
Charlottesville, Va. - Virginia pitcher Stacey Zagol (Berwyn, Pa.) today was named to the 1997 Virginia State University Division Softball team. The team was voted on by the sports information directors within the state of Virginia (VaSID).
Zagol was the Cavaliers top starting pitcher all season. She finished her freshman campaign with a 9-7 record and a 1.58 ERA in 19 appearances. Among Zagol's many highlites was the no-hitter she threw in her first collegiate start. Despite holding Florida hitless for seven innings and fanning 11 batters, the Gators pushed across an unearned run to defeat Zagol, 1-0.
The Atlantic Coast Conference named Zagol their Co-Pitcher of the Week for the week ending April 12. That week, Zagol went 3-0 while not allowing a run in 17.0 innings of work. Zagol helped Virginia rally for their ninth winning season in 10 years as she won seven of her final eight decisions. In five of her 11 starting assignments, Zagol allowed two or fewer hits (minimum 7.0 innings pitched). Zagol fanned 4.7 batters per 7.0 innings pitched.
