Suker ranks among top softball pitchers in the nation in strikeouts per game
Current National Statistics
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Sophomore pitcher Cyrilla Suker (Vooreheesville, N.Y.), who recently concluded her first season with the Binghamton softball team, is currently ranked No. 30 among NCAA Division I pitchers with 8.6 strikeouts per game. Among America East Conference pitchers, she trails only Leah McIntosh of Albany, who is ranked No. 19 with 9.4 strikeouts per game.
Suker's 142 strikeouts this season ties the second-best, single-season record in school history. She is tied with Margaret Yerdon's 1999 total and finished just one strikeout off the school record set by Michelle Weeks in 2003. Binghamton moved up to the NCAA Division I level in 2002.
In terms of strikeouts per game during a season, however, Suker does take over first place in program history. Weeks averaged 8.0 strikeouts per game in 2003 while Yerdon's 1999 average was 6.6.
Twice this season, Suker struck out at least 10 batters. Her career high of 12 strikeouts came against Niagara on March 10.
Each week, the NCAA ranks the top 50 players and teams on each of its Division I levels in every statistical category.
