MCC’s Gott is league’s Pitcher of the Week

Marshalltown Community College sophomore Mackenzie Gott has been named the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference’s Division II Pitcher of the Week.

Gott went 1-1 last week, allowing just two earned runs and six hits over 14 innings in the circle. She struck out 21.

Gott was on the mound when the Tigers took on No. 4-ranked Kirkwood, striking out 10 in a 2-1 loss to the Eagles. She also went the distance against Ellsworth, tossing a two-hit shutout – the first of her career – while striking out 11 in a 5-0 victory for MCC.

Gott and the Tigers play in the NJCAA Region XI Tournament on Friday, starting with a 1 p.m. game against Ellsworth.
