Jordan Wheeler Sets Pitching Record as Blue Ridge Sweeps Twinbill at Rantoul

RANTOUL -- Solid pitching performances from Jordan Wheeler and Marcie Crawford led the Lady Knights to two wins over Rantoul.

Wheeler increased her pitching record to 11-3 while leading Blue Ridge to a 3-0 win in the first game. She allowed only two hits while striking out 16 batters.

With the win, Wheeler now holds the school record for most wins in a career with 52. The previous record holder, with 51 wins, was Ashley Elliott, who pitched for the Lady Knights from 2005-08.

Crawford only allowed six hits as she led Blue Ridge to a 9-1 win in the second game. She also led the Lady Knights at the plate, hitting a three-run home run in the third inning.

The homer was her third of the season.

By sweeping the doubleheader at Rantoul, Blue Ridge improves its record to 17-4. The Lady Knights' next game is on Monday (weather permitting), when they host Tri-Point at 4:30 p.m.

Before the game, the seniors will conduct their Senior Day festivities, which will begin at 4:20 p.m.
