Her heralded collegiate pitching career may be over, but that does not stop the honors from coming in for Arizona State's Hillary Bach.
On Monday, Bach was named the Pac-12's Woman of the Year, becoming the first Sun Devil to receive the award. The honor recognizes her not only for her on-field prowess, but her contributions in the community and in the classroom.
Last season, she posted a 22-1 record with a 1.51 ERA, including a perfect game against Wichita State on March 4th. For her career, she was 88-20 and finished second in school history in wins.
She was also an excellent student, graduating in under four years and being named a three-time First Team Pac-12 All-Academic player. She was also the recipient of a prestigious Tillman Scholarship, and served as President for the ASU Student Athlete Advisory Committee.
She currently is pitching for the Akron Racers of the National Pro Fastpitch league.
