Logan High School graduate Ali Neace is off to a good start this season with the Alderson Broaddus College women’s softball team.

Neace, a junior pitcher and former standout with the LHS Lady Cats, was named as the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Softball Pitcher of the Week on Monday after tossing a complete-game no-hitter last Saturday against Virginia University of Lynchburg.

Neace struck out 10 Dragons in the outing, her second no-hitter since firing one against Molloy last season.

The Battlers (2-0) swept both contests in the weather-shortened Shaw Tournament.

“Ali came out very strong was hitting her spots and was just on all game,” Alderson Broaddus first-year coach Shawn Bowers said. “It was fun to watch her pitch.”

Neace and the Battlers are scheduled to travel to Florida from March 9-16 as A-B is slated to play in the NTC Spring Games in Clermont, Fla. The Battlers are set to play a total of 13 games in the Sunshine State.

Last year as a sophomore, Neace ended up being one of the top pitchers in the WVIAC as she was 12-7 with a 2.38 ERA. Neace pitched 105.2 innings and allowed just 28 earned runs and 88 hits to go along with her 87 strikeouts.

Neace pitched 11 complete games and had five shutouts while allowing 13 doubles and two triples while holding opponents to just a .221 batting average. At the end of the season she was named honorable mention all-conference.

Alderson Broaddus, located in Philippi, W.Va., went 24-23 last season, including a 13-15 mark in the WVIAC.
