Former CAV Earns Big South Pitcher of the Week Honor http://www.ccps.us/2016/04/former-cav-earns-big-south-pitcher-of-the-week-honor/ Tue, 19 Apr 2016 14:37:48 +0000 http://www.ccps.us/?p=5056 […]]]> CHARLOTTE, N.C. – excerpt, Radford Athletics – Following a nearly flawless performance in three complete-game victories, Radford junior Abby Morrow has been named Big South Conference co-Pitcher of the Week, the league announced on Monday.

Morrow went 3-0 with a 0.33 ERA and two shutouts in her three starts last week, allowing just one run and nine hits over 21 innings. She had 12 strikeouts with just one walk, which ended a 42-inning streak without issuing a free pass. In her first two outings of the week, she recorded back-to-back two-hitters against Hampton and Presbyterian.

The lone run scored against Morrow came in the fourth inning Sunday versus the Blue Hose and was the first earned run Morrow had allowed in more than 35 innings of work. In her last six appearances, the righthander from Ruther Glen, Va., has a 6-0 record and a miniscule 0.18 ERA, helping key the Highlanders’ nine-game winning streak. In four of her last five starts during the span, she limited opponents to three hits or fewer.

For the season, Morrow is the conference’s leader with 17 victories and six shutouts, while standing second with a 1.90 ERA, and closing in on Longwood’s Elizabeth McCarthy, who is at 1.78. McCarthy, who shares this week’s conference pitching honor, allowed five runs, including three earned, in three combined wins over Virginia Tech and Gardner-Webb last week.

The weekly honor is the second of Morrow’s career. She also claimed the award after the third week last year, prior to suffering her season-ending injury.

Morrow and the rest of the Highlanders (29-15) are back in action on Wednesday night as they host a rematch with Virginia Tech at 7 p.m.

“Dr. Broaddus dedicated most of her life to education, all in Caroline County,” said School Board Chairman George Spaulding. “While she was in the Central Office, she wore many hats and did a great job with all of them. She was very loyal to our school system. While her announcement was quite a surprise to the Board, we wish her all the best in her retirement and know we can always call on her.”

Caroline County Public Schools previous Superintendent, Dr. Gregory Killough commented, “When you bring up the name Dr. Rebecca Broaddus, you bring up the perfect representation of Caroline County. She is a classy, professional and dedicated lady. She is an individual who loves her community, the children in her community and she personifies a gracious spirit. You know your life has been touched in a very special way when you work with Dr. Broaddus.”

Dr. Broaddus began her teaching career at Caroline Middle School in August of 1977 where she taught for 15 years. She served as assistant principal at Caroline Middle School for 4 years before being appointed as principal of Bowling Green Primary where she remained for 2 years. She served as the the Director of Special Programs for 10 years. Dr. Broaddus was appointed Assistant Superintendent of Caroline County Public Schools in 2008.

Additionally, Dr. Broaddus served as acting Superintendent during the spring of 2015 while the School Board completed a search for a new superintendent. During that time, she oversaw the budget process and negotiated with the Board of Supervisors on the FY 2016 budget.

During her tenure, Dr. Broaddus had many significant accomplishments that moved Caroline County Public Schools forward, including the revamping of the teacher mentoring process and handbook, and the development of and training for the teacher performance evaluation system currently in use. She also oversaw the development and implementation of the school division’s strategic plan as well as the school division’s instructional program. Dr. Broaddus was instrumental in the planning and opening of the new Lewis and Clark Elementary School.
