Suburban Propane’s Player of the Week: Nerissa Long

Bear River’s Nerissa Long started the prep softball season much like she finished last season, by fanning the opposing batters. Long led the Lady Bruins past Nevada Union Wednesday, pitching a shutout, allowing just one hit and striking out 11. Long then pitched a no-hitter with 11 strikeouts in a 3-0 win over Rio Americano Friday.

Bear River's Nerissa Long impressed from the slab this week going 2-0 in two Pioneer Valley League starts, beating Colfax and Center. The hard throwing freshmen pitcher struck out a combined 30 batters in the two wins and allowed only one earned run. On the season, Long is 5-0 in PVL play with a 1.20 ERA.
