Newell’s All-District selection will put her name on the ballot for All-American status.

Newell has broken the Bethel record for strikeouts in a season with 252 up to this point of the season. Concord graduate Brittney (Hire) Lightfoot struck out 244 in 2007 to match the 244 by Amy Wetzel in 1995.

Newell has allowed just 71 hits and 25 runs this season in 137 innings, giving her a 1.03 ERA and a .150 batting average by opposing teams.

Newell was the starting pitcher is the second game. She hurled five inning, allowing two hits to go with nine strikeouts and two walks.
