Jennifer Chasteen Earns Horizon League Honor

INDIANAPOLIS, IND. -- Butler senior Jennifer Chasteen has been named Horizon League Softball Pitcher of the Week, for the week beginning March 14.  The Butler pitcher, who helped lead the Bulldogs to a 9-1 record at the Rebel Games in Florida, earned the league honor for the second time this season.

Chasteen appeared in five games at the week-long Florida event and compiled a perfect 3-0 record.  She did not allow an earned run in 22.2 innings of work, maintaining a perfect 0.00 earned run average on the season.  She has now pitched 36.1 innings this spring without giving up an earned run.

The Butler righthander recorded six strikeouts in a 3-1 victory over Colgate, and then she tossed a pair of 10-0 shutouts against St. Peter’s.  She had seven strikeouts, while allowing just two hits, in the second win against St. Peter’s.

The successful week in Florida helped boost Butler’s season-record to 11-6.

The Bulldogs, who have a doubleheader at Indiana on Tuesday (March 22), will play their first home games of the season with a twinbill against Indiana State starting at 3 p.m. (ET) at the new Butler Softball Field on Thursday, March 24.
