Former Sycamore softball player Rhianna Fleetwood has helped lead Central College to the NCAA Division III championship finals in Eau Claire, Wis. Friday.
The No. 16-ranked Dutch (32-8) captured the eight-team Pella Regional title, defeating No. 8 St. Thomas (Minn.) 2-1 in the finale.
Fleetwood, a first-team all-Iowa Conference pitcher a year ago, was injured early in the season but has contributed as a designated player and pinch-hitter. Her bases-loaded walk brought home the lead run in Central’s 2-1 title game win. For the season she’s hitting .355 with one homer and 15 RBIs.
