GB Women’s Team pitcher Georgina Corrick throws college no-hitter

Tue 27 Mar 2018

GB Women’s Team pitcher Georgina Corrick, in her freshman year at NCAA Division 1 University of South Florida, pitched her school’s first no-hitter since 2015 in an 8-0 win over North Florida on Sunday 18 March.

It was the first time a USF freshman had thrown a no-hitter since 1996.

Georgina threw 55 strikes in 88 pitches against North Florida and finished her fourth complete game of the season.  Over that weekend, she pitched 11.1 innings in three appearances and allowed just two hits.

So far, despite this being her first year on the team, Georgina leads the USF Bulls’ pitching staff in game starts and innings pitched.


Reactions

The University of South Florida Softball Team is coached by Team USA Head Coach Ken Eriksen, and Team USA pitcher Jessica Moore is the pitching coach, so Georgina has been the recipient of some high-level coaching that should stand her in good stead when she pitches for Great Britain in this summer’s WBSC World Championship in Japan and the European Championship and Olympic Qualifier in 2019.

Last summer, Georgina led the GB Team to a bronze medal at the European Championship and qualification for Japan, with the key game being a 4-1 extra-inning win over the Czech Republic in which Georgina out-pitched Veronika Petcova, one of the top pitchers in Europe.

After the no-hitter in Florida, Jessica Moore said: "I'm just excited for Georgina….   It's really the result of buying into a system [and] really starting to figure things out.  She just pitched so well today."

Georgina said, “Honestly, I go into every game and my attitude is, 'I'm going to throw a no-hitter’, but to actually follow through with it is so big for me.  I have to do my job.  My job is to not let people hit me, and if they do, keep them weak -- keep them to low hits and keep them on the ground.  That's the best I could do … and the results speak for themselves."
