Cindy Gannon Walk for Women Series: Krumrey Surpasses 300 Career Strikeouts

Mar 15, 2018

This week’s Two Minute Drill is the second in a four-part Cindy Gannon Walk for Women series, highlighting the accomplishments of our women student-athletes and coaches.

Senior pitcher Madeline Krumrey went over 300 career strikeouts as the Southeast Missouri softball team swept Indiana State in a doubleheader Tuesday, March 13, at the Southeast Softball Complex, the first home games for the Redhawks this season.

Krumrey caught ISU leadoff hitter Leslie Sims looking on strikes for her 300th career strikeout in the fifth inning of game one. She now ranks sixth all-time among the school's all-time career strikeout leaders with 303 Ks, and she is sure to continue to climb up the rankings.

Coming into the season, Krumrey ranked among the top 10 leaders in 11 different career statistical records.

Krumrey is not the only Redhawk who is making her way into the career records books. Sophomore outfielder Rachel Anderson smacked her fourth triple of the season in Tuesday’s game one, and she now ranks tied fourth all-time at Southeast in career triples, only part way through her second collegiate season.

Redhawk fans will want to come out and cheer on Madeline, Rachel, and the entire softball team next Wednesday, March 21, when Southeast hosts the Mizzou Tigers at the Southeast Softball Complex. SEMO and Mizzou will face off in a doubleheader beginning at 4 p.m. It marks the first time Mizzou has visited Cape Girardeau since 2003.

The 11th Annual Cindy Gannon Walk for Women will be held Saturday, April 7 at Houck Field House, to raise money benefitting student-athlete scholarships. Learn more online at walkforwomen.semo.edu.
