With 2 time Pitcher of the Year, Tiaria Norman of Claflin University graduating, that left the door wide open for a new Pitcher to step in.   After tying with Paola Flores of Kentucky State University for the Fan Vote, that allowed MaKayla August of Saint Augustine’s University to outduel Aryn McGowan of Albany State University and become your 2019 HBCU Division II Pre-Season Pitcher of the Year.

The 5’8 Junior Pitcher from Palm Springs, CA helped Saint Augustine to a CIAA Southern Division Title in 2018 while going 10-6 in the circle with a 3.37 ERA.  In 95 2/3 innings pitched, August struck out 75 batters while only allowing 35 walks and holding opponents to a .252 batting average.   In CIAA play,  August was 6-3 with a 3.71 ERA, throwing 49 innings, striking out 46 batters and walking 18 batters while holding CIAA opponents to a .224 average.

If Saint Augustine’s looks to compete for another CIAA Southern Division Title in 2019,  they will have to rely heavily on MaKayla August especially with the departure of counterpart Marley Parker to graduation.   With Claflin coming into the Southern Division in 2019,  look for that matchup to be very competitive when August faces Pre-Season Player of the Year Kayla Cato.
