Last week, I wrote about Heartland Community College and their Coach Steve Leverton. Today, I am featuring ace sophomore pitcher Alyssa Roll.
Last season, Alyssa earned All-Tournament honors. During the season, Roll appeared in 13 games, pitching 46.2 innings. She went 7-0 with a 1.95 ERA. She only allowed 11 extra-base hits. Roll had been a star player at Brimfield High School.
Bigger things are expected from Roll in the 2020 season. With a season of experience behind her, Roll should be among the leaders in her conference. Of course, going undefeated again is a tall order, but Roll showed she is capable of great things. If she continues to pitch well, her record will take care of itself.
I hope to see the Hawks at NU Fall Ball again. Until then, I will be following them at HeartlandHawks.com.
Good luck to the Roll an the Hawks. Thank you to Roll for her time after a long, cold day of softball.
