ANNANDALE -- Over the next two weeks, the Northern Virginia Community College athletic department will countdown the 10 best moments of the 2016-17 athletics season. The list is comprised of individual and team highlights from the field of play.
The NOVA athletic department has selected Kayla Farbaugh’s 10 strike out performance at USCAA opponent Christendom as the No. 6 moment of the 2016-17 season. Farbaugh became the first Nighthawk pitcher to fan 10 batters in a game.
In the contest against the Crusaders, Farbaugh struck out at least one batter in every inning and caught three batters looking. She also fanned three Christendom batters in the third and retired nine straight batters between the second and fourth innings.
During the 2017 season, Farbaugh struck out 26 in 30 innings of work and won her first three decisions of her collegiate career.
