Mizzou Pitcher Named SEC Freshman Of The Year

Posted by willp on May 6, 2014

Missouri pitcher Tori Finucane claimed SEC Freshman of the Year honors and was one of three Tigers named to the All-SEC First Team.

Finucane joined OF Taylor Gadbois and IF Corrin Genovese on the first team, leading the Tigers with a 21-5 record and an ERA of 1.70 that ranked second in the conference.

Gadbois was a sensational leadoff hitter for the Tigers, collecting a program record 29-game hitting streak in the middle of the season with a .424 average overall and 45 steals.

Genovese had a breakout season at the plate, hitting .439 in SEC play and was a defensive stalwart at shortstop once again. Her teammate, senior Mackenzie Sykes, earned first-team honors on the SEC’s All-Defensive Team.

The Tigers begin play in the SEC Tournament Thursday against LSU at 10 AM, with next weekend marking the start of NCAA Regional play.
