Our continuing coverage of the Chicago Bandits brings us to pitcher Sara Moulton. The third year player has a lot going on.
While at the University of Minnesota, Sara was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, as well as being a 4 time All-Big Ten Performer. She also holds the school record for wins (112), appearances (178), innings pitched (1,017), complete games (108), no-hitters (5), shutouts (47) and strikeouts (1,184). After her successful career at Minnesota, she was drafted fifth overall in the 2014 NPF draft.
Over the last three seasons, Sara has been a valuable member of the pitching staff, going 11-4 over the span with 61 strikeouts in 99 innings.
We talked to Sara about her tremendous transformation. Sara has lost 65 pounds in the last two years. She has a whole new diet, workout routine and attitude. She is also training for her first Marathon.
We also talked about her business of Strike Zone Sports. You can see Sara's passion when she talks about teaching youngsters.
Among other topics, I also asked Sara about the chances the average person would have facing an NPF pitcher. Sara was a great sport and showed her humor, while obliging me with a comment that I will be using on all of my friends who poke me about my strikeout last season against the Bandits. (Thank you Sara, I appreciate this greatly.)
It was a fun interview with Sara. She is a mature young athlete and person. She is another example of the quality people who make up the Bandits organization. On and off the field, Sara will do well. I look forward to her Marathon run and I wish her great health and luck. We will report back here after she finishes!
