Rebel Softball Adds Impact Pitcher Hummel Joins The Rebels From Memphis
July 25, 2012
OXFORD, Miss. - Ole Miss softball head coach Windy Thees announced the signing of former Memphis standout pitcher Carly Hummel on Wednesday. A junior, Hummel will join the Rebels for the 2013 season and has two years of eligibility remaining.
A native of Bakersfield, Calif., Hummel is the Tigers' career leader in strikeouts (445), shutouts (13) and ERA (1.93), and is tied for the school record with 37 career victories. A Conference USA All-Freshman team selection in 2010, Hummel posted a 15-10 record with a 1.74 ERA and 210 Ks. As a sophomore, she helped lead Memphis to its first-ever NCAA tournament appearance with a 21-8 record and a 1.46 ERA, while becoming the first player in Tiger history to toss three no-hitters in the same year. Last season, Hummel started just five games for before injury ended her season.
"I am very excited to have Carly join the Ole Miss family," said Thees. "I have seen firsthand what she can do on the mound, and I know she will rise to the challenge of competing in the SEC week-after-week. She exemplifies the student-athlete, as she excels in the classroom as much as she does in the circle. I look forward to coaching her as a Rebel."
The daughter of Bradley and Monica Hummel, Carly lettered three years as a pitcher and shortstop at Ridgeview High School and was coached by Jerry Dumatralt. A three-time all-league selection and two-time all-area pick, she totaled 18 career no hitters and had a 17-6 record as a junior in 2008 with the Wolf Pack. Hummel finished her junior year with a 0.42 ERA and 334 strikeouts and entered her senior year with 820 career Ks and a 0.61 ERA before suffering a shoulder bicep injury.
