Rich DeCray


Finding some footing within the Oklahoma Sooners program, Giselle Juarez finally seemed comfortable in the rotation of pitchers. Earning the start in two games over the course of the week, the transfer secured two wins. Helping the program to a 4-1 record over the weekend, Juarez was labeled the NFCA National Pitcher of the Week.

Stepping into the circle on three separate instances, Juarez pitched 14.1 innings over the course of three days. Showcasing elite level talent, the lefty struck out 29 batters while walking just one. The single player effort held opponents to a 0.087 batting average after surrendering just two hits. Behind the dominant effort, Juarez secured a 2-0 record boosting her numbers to 4-0 on the year.

As a junior, Juarez remains an integral part of the Sooner defense. Assuming the role of a dominant left-handed pitcher at the University of Oklahoma, the program continues to ride the likes of the experienced hurler to victory.
