Dutch Fork grad is Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week

By Thomas Grant Jr.

Former Dutch Fork pitcher Morgan Scott continues to thrive on the West Coast.

On Monday, the University of Oregon senior was named the Pac-12 Softball pitcher of the week.

Scott was involved in all three wins in the Ducks’ sweep of Arizona State this past weekend. She struck out five in a 3-2 win to open the series, followed with a 4-out save in Game 2 and threw a scoreless seventh to close it out.

In the three games, Scott struck out seven in 9 1/3 innings of work. This was her second conference Pitcher of the Week Award after winning last April.

As of Monday, Scott had a 7-4 record with a 2.47 ERA and 35 strikeouts.
