Former USA National Team member joins Tulsa teammate

 

Akron, OH—Akron Racers GM, Joey Arrietta announced today that Two-Time All-American and 2013 USA National Team member will follow Tulsa teammate, Jill Barrett, to the Racers in 2015.

Creger, the 5’10” pitcher from Yukon, OK, led the nation with 354 strikeouts her senior season.

 

“Aimee and I have been in conversation for quite some time,” explains Arrietta. “The timing was perfect for her and our team to agree on a contract. She is a dominating pitcher and incredibly gifted athlete.”

 

“I always knew that I wanted to continue to pitch after I graduated,” explains Creger. “I love the game and I’m really excited to join the Racers.”

 

Creger brings a lengthy list of accomplishments including her second place finish in three 2014 NCAA categories; 11.5 strikeouts/seven innings; 13 shutouts and 3.29 hits/seven innings. She currently holds two Tulsa career records for wins (97) and strikeouts (1080).

 

Creger had an amazing senior season registering a 1.14 ERA in 215 innings pitched while facing 725 batters, limiting them to a just .138 batting average. Creger finished her senior season with a 29-2 record.

 

“I am honored to become a part of this program and look forward to facing all of the talent that the league has to offer,” Creger remarked. “I am also excited to reunite on and off the field with Jill (Barrett)! We were roommates for the 4 1/2 years at Tulsa, and she is an amazing player. I can't wait to have her on the field, knowing she's a machine and can stop anything whether it's in the infield or outfield!”
