COLENA LAZAR NAMED FCSAA PITCHER OF THE WEEK FOR FOURTH TIME

FCSAA Softball Pitcher of the Week Colena Lazar, Santa Fe Sophomore – Dade City, Fla.

Santa Fe College’s Colena Lazar is this week’s FCSAA Softball Pitcher of the Week. Lazar, a sophomore, from Dade City, Fla., picked up victories in each of her three outings last week. Against St. Johns River State on April 2, she earned the “W” in both games of the doubleheader.

In game one, she tossed a ten-inning complete game in the Saints’ 3-2 win. En route to the victory, Lazar reached the 500 career strikeout plateau and finished the game with nine. She added two more Ks during a 1.2 inning stint in relief in game two – and she earned the victory in Santa Fe’s 2-1 win.

The next day, Lazar pitched into extra innings again, this time an eight-inning effort against NJCAA No. 14 Gulf Coast. She struck out 13 and earned the win in the Saints’ 1-0 victory.

For the week, Lazar totaled 19.2 innings and allowed nine hits and two earned runs (0.71 ERA). This is her fourth time winning the award this season.
