SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa senior Amanda Zust was named Big Ten softball Pitcher of the Week on Monday after pitching a no-hitter against South Dakota on Sunday.

Starting four games over the past week, Zust pitched three complete games and struck out 25 batters while putting up a 0.54 ERA.

Against the Coyotes, she allowed two walks during her no-hitter, which lasted six innings because of the eight-run mercy rule.

The no-hitter was Zust’s second of her career. Both efforts came against South Dakota, and she became one of only five Hawkeyes to have more than one no-hitter in their career.

This is Zust’s first Big Ten accolade of her four-year career.

The team is also benefiting from Zust’s production, going 4-0 in her last four starts. She will likely be in the circle at 4 p.m. Wednesday, when the Hawkeyes will host Illinois State.
