IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa Junior pitcher Allison Doocy has been named second-team All-Big Ten, the conference announced Wednesday.
Doocy was Iowa’s ace during the regular season. She appeared in 37 games with 21 complete games, going 14-15 with a 2.73 ERA. Doocy ranks fourth in the Big Ten in innings pitched and strikeouts with 184.2 and 192, respectively.
Doocy earned her 500th career strikeout against Nebraska on April 24, and with eight more strikeouts, she can become the fifth Hawkeye in program history with multiple 200-strikeout seasons.
The honor is Doocy’s second all-conference honor of her career and second league accolade of the season. Doocy was named the Big Ten Pitcher of the Week on March 11, after throwing two complete games, striking out 19, and giving up two runs in 18 innings at the Saluki Invitational.
The 12-seed Hawkeyes face fifth-seeded Wisconsin in the opening game of the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday at 10 a.m. (CT). The game will be broadcast live on the Big Ten Network.
