Ashlyn Finarty

Knoxville's Ashlyn Finarty pitches against Pella Christian.

School: Knoxville

Year: Freshman

Sport: Softball

Position: Pitcher

How about a 3-0 start with a freshman leading the way in the circle? Knoxville went undefeated in the first week of the season with a couple of gutsy wins and Ashlyn Finarty not playing her age.

The freshman would go 3-0 on the rubber while sporting a 1.75 ERA and 11 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched. She had to battle out of some tough situations and seems to almost pitch better with the pressure of having runners on.

At the plate, Finarty held her own in the three-hole for the Panthers, going 6-for-11 (.545 BA) with two RBIs and one walk.

Finarty and Knoxville (3-0, 1-0 SCC) will look to keep things going as they will travel to Centerville (3-0, 2-0 SCC) on Monday at 7:30 p.m.
