Cate went 2 – 0 pitching during the week with wins against Huntingdon and Clearfield. She had a total of 27 strikeouts in those two games which now gives her 111 strike outs for the season and 187 for her career.  Cate also earned the 8th win of her career, the most by a pitcher at Tyrone in a very long time. Cate also hit .571 for the week going 4 for 7 at the plate. It was the Huntingdon game that Cate got her 100th strikeout of the year when she had 17 strikeouts in that game.

Coach Myers Quote: 

“It is great to have a pitcher, player, student and teammate like Cate on our team. Cate has worked very hard year around to get to the level she is at. We are very excited about her accomplishments so far and we can’t wait to see what her future holds. Cate has a great demeanor on the mound in that she never gets nervous with what is going on around her and that is a great quality to have because that helps to keep her teammates from getting nervous. I believe Cate is the best pitcher in the Mountain League and there is no one else I would want pitching for the Golden Eagle softball team.”
