Athlete of the Week: Mosinee's Emily Tucker

Posted:

Mosinee pitcher Emily Tucker tossed a no-hitter against Lakeland on Thursday.  

And the Indians senior didn't even know it until she read it in the newspaper the next day. In that game, Emily walked one and struck out 12 batters.  And she didn't even have her best stuff.  

Emily has led Mosinee to a 5-0 record in the Great Northern Conference. She's started every game, pitching 24 scoreless innings and striking out 51 batters.  

When she's on, Emily can locate a fastball, throw a screwball, and mix it with a devastating changeup. And she's getting it done at the plate as well.  Emily has struggled offensively in her career, but this season is batting close to .500 and has led off for the Indians.  

If she keeps improving at this rate, you'll have to start feeling bad for her opponents.
