Fastpitch News NJCAA DI 2017 Pitcher of the Year

Regan Mergele (29-0)

It is pretty difficult to do better than being undefeated. That is what Regan Mergele did for the 2017 National Champion Bears this season. On the season she threw 130 innings while racking up 196 strikeouts. She was second in the country in K/7 with 10.55 and third in ERA 0.75. She was a big reason that the Bears went 58-1 on the season and captured their second straight national title. Another impressive statistic is she allowed just four home runs all season long. Mergele was an honorable mention selection last year by FPN. She will play for the Universty of Nebraska in 2018.
