Georgia Ingle has emerged as a key arm in Rutgers bullpen
During the 2023 campaign, Rutgers softball has seen a few players emerge as critical parts of the future. That includes Georgia Ingle, who has been lights out on the mound. The North Carolina native is only in her sophomore year but has been one of the Scarlet Knights most trusted arms.
In 24.2 innings of work, Ingle has pitched to a 1.14 ERA while striking out eight batters. While she has struggled to miss bats, the Newton-Conover High School product has kept opponents off the board. With wins at a premium, she has provided a boost out of the bullpen.

Over the last two months, Ingle has allowed four runs in 11 outings. Her ERA has dropped below 2.00, as she only allowed multiple hits in three outings. While the Scarlet Knights struggled in April, Ingle was the exception and put zeros on the scoreboard regardless of the opponent.
While the regular season isn’t over, Ingle has established herself as a crucial part of this team. During her freshman year, Ingle posted a 4.12 ERA and allowed five home runs. In 2023, she has been a completely different pitcher and kept the ball in the ballpark.

As the Scarlet Knights prepare for the Big Ten tournament in the coming weeks, Ingle will be called upon in high-leverage situations. She has earned that this season and has shown the ability to make adjustments. Her emergence has provided optimism for what the future holds.
