COLLEGE CONNECTIONS: Bethel star Natalie Newell is back at it

GOSHEN — Picking up right where she left off last season, Bethel College sophomore pitcher Natalie Newell tossed a one-hitter as the Pilots posted a 6-0 win over UMET to open the 2013 softball season in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Goshen High School graduate struck out 18 and walked two in the complete game victory.

She also contributed on offense with a double and an RBI.

The Pilots were a 4-1 winner in the second game of the twin bill.

Newell recorded 225 strikeouts last season, fourth best total in school history. Amy Wetzel (1995) and Brittney (Hire) Lightfoot (2007) shared the single-season mark at 244. Lightfoot (Concord) holds the career mark at 644.

The Pilots continued their spring trip with 18-1 and 8-0 wins over the University of Puerto Rico. Newell had two hits, two RBI and two runs scored and freshman McKenzie Byler (Goshen) a single in the first game. Newell pitched the second contest, tossing a no-hitter to improve to 2-0 on the young season. She faced just 15 batters over the five innings, striking out 13 and walking one.

Bethel wrapped up the trip with 6-1 and 9-1 victories over Universidad Del Turabo. Newell hurled the final two innings of the opener and entered the second to strikeout the final hitter.
