Jordan Dixon turned in a spectacular performance over the weekend, notching three wins as the Herd swept the series against Furman University.

In addition to her three wins, Dixon’s stuff from the mound was untouchable. She tallied 26 strikeouts and just one earned run in the entire three game series. Dixon allowed just four total base hits.

The three wins gave Dixon 20 on the season, already as many wins as she accumulated all of last season.

Dixon has been off to a solid start to the season and has been very steady as the Herd’s game-to-game starter.

She made 31 appearances with 26 starts, posting a 20-10 record with 18 complete games.

Dixon stakes claim to an impressive 2.33 earned run average thus far this season with 58 earned runs in 174.1 innings pitched.

She is fanning batters at the plate and has offered them little leeway for contact this season with opposing hitters posting just a .194 batting average and striking out 209 times.

Head coach Shonda Stanton said Dixon’s weekend performance was impressive.

“She was absolutely outstanding,” Stanton said. “We really challenged her over the last couple weeks and she goes out and racks up the Ks (strikeouts) in game one, and comes out in game two and has a no-hitter going into the sixth inning. So, I was really impressed with how outstanding she was.”
