PITTSBURGH -- Point Park University softball has signed Michaela Lewis-Lambert, a freshman pitcher from Elkins, W.Va. and Elkins High School.
Lewis-Lambert was a second-team all-state player in West Virginia last year as a senior at Elkins. She set a school record with 181 strikeouts in 132 innings. Lewis-Lambert was a two-time all-conference player in high school, and she led her Elkins team to its first-ever section championship in 2013.
"Michaela Lewis-Lambert is a power pitcher, a hard thrower, and she will add a lot to our pitching staff," said Point Park head coach Michelle Coultas. "She will contribute to our team as a freshman."
Lewis-Lambert lettered four times in softball and four times in basketball, and she was a captain in both sports. The 5-foot-8 Lewis-Lambert also hit .430 with 20 RBIs at the plate.
She joins a pitching staff that has 4 of 6 arms returning from last year's team. The Pioneers were 31-13 overall, 22-6 KIAC and took third place in the KIAC Tournament.
