Lenoir-Rhyne’s Beeler Named to NCAA Division II Pitcher of the Year Watchlist

One hundred and fifteen student-athletes from across the country were revealed as part of the 2023 Tucci/NFCA Division II Player and Pitcher of the Year watchlist. Lenoir-Rhyne’s Morgan Beeler was named to the Pitcher of the Year watchlist.

Beeler is currently 15-3 with a 1.55 ERA to go along with 130 strikeouts in 108 1/3 innings pitched. Beeler has four complete game shutouts this season, including her second career no-hitter against No. 18 Wingate on March 14.

New in 2023, the list is broken down into the eight NCAA Regions (Atlantic, Central, East, Midwest, South, South Central, Southeast and West) with up to 15 student-athletes represented in each region. The list is compiled and the award is voted on by the elected members of the NFCA Division II All-American Committee with one head coach representing each of the eight NCAA regions. To be eligible, a student-athlete’s head coach must be a member.

Voted on by the NFCA’s Division II All-American Committee, the 2023 Tucci/NFCA Player and Pitcher of the Year will be announced on June 1. All student-athletes are eligible for the end-of-the-season award and do not have to be on this list to be considered.

Beeler and the rest of the Bears will be at home on Sunday against UVA-Wise. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 PM from Bears Field.
