One would think her production would slip in college facing tougher competition.
However, Wimpy continues to put up impressive numbers at Reinhardt University and was awarded for her efforts by being named player of the week in the Appalachian Athletic Conference on March 31.
Wimpy hit three home runs in four games in the week to give her an NAIA-leading 16 homers on the season.
In Reinhardt’s first game of the week, Wimpy went 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBIs and two runs scored in an 8-3 win over Union. In the second game of a doubleheader, Wimpy went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs and four runs scored as the Lady Eagles won, 21-9.
Then, against Truett-McConnell, Wimpy hit a double and drove in a run in an 8-1 victory. In the second game of a doubleheader against Truett-McConnell, Wimpy went 1-for-2 with another home run and four RBIs in a 12-0 win.
Wimpy is currently ranked nationally in 16 different categories and leads the NAIA in total bases with 128, is fourth in the nation in RBIs with 51 and leads the AAC with a .450 batting average.
A sophomore catcher, this is Wimpy’s first season at Reinhardt. The Lady Eagles are currently ranked 10th in NAIA.
Two seasons ago, at Walters State Community College in Tennessee, Wimpy was named a first team all-American and led the NJCAA in batting average, on-base percentage and was second in home runs.
