Hogs ace Chenise Delce selected in Athletes Unlimited Draft
On Monday night, one of the best pitchers in Arkansas Razorback softball history was selected in the Athletes Unlimted Draft.
Right-handed redshirt senior Chenise Delce went ninth overall in the draft, joining three other SEC softball products. Delce joins former Razorback Danielle Gibson as the only two players from the program to be selected in the AUX draft.
Delce’s career isn’t over yet, with the SEC Tournament and a potential College World Series run still on the table, but it has been illustrious so far. Delce has a career 1.82 ERA with 173 strikeouts, 16 complete games, and five solo shutouts across 157.2 innings pitched. Her record stands at 39-11.
All of this in two years of work.
This season Delce ranks third in the SEC in strikeouts, 173, and wins, currently at 20.
Delce was named SEC Pitcher of the Year and SEC Tournament MVP after an impressive 2022 campaign 😱
