New Richmond's Singerhouse notches 500th career strikeout
New Richmond pitcher Nikki Singerhouse recorded the 500th strikeout of her varsity career on Thursday as the Tigers ran their season record to 5-0 with an 8-3 win over Ellsworth.
The game was stopped briefly to recognize Singerhouse's landmark strikeout. She has been the Tigers' top pitcher since her freshman season and is the team's career leader in nearly every pitching category. In 31 innings this season Singerhouse has struck out 35 batters while allowing six earned runs.
Singerhouse celebrated her accomplishment in style. She was the first batter in the next half inning for the Tigers and she belted a homer that rolled all the way to the fence in right-centerfield at Hatfield Park.
