Curwensville High Class of 2009
Pitcher/outfielder Holly Lansberry (Curwensville) ended her remarkable four-year career at Lycoming with a tough loss and a save in the circle and two hits and a run batted in at the plate against Albright at Reading Saturday.
The right-hander was tagged with the 3-2 loss in the opener though surrendering only three hits and one earned run and then came on to save the 11-6 win in the nightcap of the Commonwealth Conference doubleheader as the Warriors finished 15-19, their most wins since 2005.
Those two appearances gave Lansberry a career total of 75, No. 1 all-time for Lycoming. The previous record was 74 established by Morgan Mantle (2003-06).
And the first-game start padded her all-time record for career starts to 66.
In all, Lansberry’s name will appear among the Top 10 in the Lycoming record book 26 times for career pitching and hitting statistics and 32 times for single-season totals.
She pitched 2-1/3 innings at Albright for her second save of the season, giving up two hits and one earned run.
For the season, Lansberry completed 12 of 15 starts for a 7-7 record with a 2.44 earned run average and an 85-24 strikeout-walk ratio. She worked 97-2/3 innings in 19 appearances and allowed 92 hits and 49 runs, including 34 earned.
As the Warrior leadoff batter, Lansberry collected 28 hits for a .292 average, coaxed a school-record 23 walks from opposing hurlers and scored 18 runs. She had three doubles and five RBIs.
Lansberry started all 34 games, either in the circle or in right field, and registered hits in 24 of them.
Among the Lycoming career rankings Lansberry (32-35) attained for pitching were second place in innings pitched (424.2), strikeouts (336) and most strikeouts per seven innings (5.54), third in complete games (48), fourth in wins (32) and shutouts (7), seventh in lowest ERA (3.07) and lowest opponent batting average (.256) and ninth in fewest walks allowed per seven innings (2.57).
Her career batting average of .314 didn’t qualify for the record book, but she was fourth in hits (109), fifth in at bats (357), seventh in on-base average (.413), eighth in runs scored (63), 10th in total bases (126) and tied for 10th in doubles (13).
