Vandebilt Catholic High School graduate Nora Keehn is going out with a bang.
In her final Gulf South Conference home start, Keehn, a University of West Alabama senior pitcher, struck out 11 batters in a win over Mississippi College. In the start, she also allowed just one run, scattering seven hits in a win.
For her efforts, Keehn earned the GSC Player of the Week this past week — her first such honor of the season.
So far, Keehn has been a force in the circle for West Alabama, owning a 14-7 record in 34 appearances with a 2.71 ERA. She has 78 strikeouts and opponents are batting just .258 against Keehn in 149.2 innings.
West Alabama has been solid this season, owning a 28-18 record and a 15-10 mark in conference play.
