Kent State senior pitcher Emma Johnson was named Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association Division I National Pitcher of the Week on Tuesday.

Johnson turned in the most dominant weekend of her collegiate career. She pitched 22? scoreless innings, including three shutouts, a no-hitter, a one-hitter and a two-hitter to help the Golden Flashes move into a tie for first place in the Mid-American Conference standings.

Johnson extended her scoreless innings streak to 30 while holding opposing batters to a .044 batting average last week.

Johnson threw a no-hitter against Bowling Green in the first game of a doubleheader last Friday and earned the save against the Falcons in the second game.

Johnson had nine strikeouts to move into second place on Kent State’s career strikeout list on Saturday to finish with a two-hit win against Toledo. Johnson allowed a bloop single against Toledo on Sunday for a one-hitter.

The Golden Flashes (35-11, 13-4 MAC), who have achieved the third-winningest season in program history, have an opportunity to capture the MAC regular-season title and the top seed in next week’s MAC Tournament against Western Michigan and Northern Illinois in games this weekend. The Flashes host Western Michigan for two games on Friday and welcome Northern Illinois on Saturday and Sunday.
