Trevecca Nazarene University

Brown and Johnson capture more records

Trevecca athletes are setting new school records. Steven Brown, closer for the Trojan baseball team, set a new Trojan baseball record for saves in a season with his seventh of the year in game one of a double-header with Mid-Continent University on Friday (April 18). Brown shared the previous season record (6) with Chris Fowler. Brown had six saves last year, one year after Fowler had set the record. Brown set the career record for saves early this season. He broke the record (8) shared by Fowler and Keith Orser. Brown now has 13 career saves.

Trevecca won the first game 12-4 and game two 12-2. Trevecca also beat Mid-Continent in the Saturday night game, April 19, in Greer Stadium.

Brittiany Johnson, pitcher for the Trojan softball team, reached another career milestone in game one of NAIA No. 4 Trevecca's double-header with Lambuth University on Thursday. Johnson became only the third pitcher in NAIA history to reach the 1,000 career-strike-out mark.

Johnson reached that mark when she sat down her sixth Eagle of the game in the fourth inning. Even more impressive is that Johnson has reached the plateau in just her third season at Trevecca after transferring from the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga following her freshman season.

Johnson holds nearly all of Trevecca's pitching records and is ranked highly in several NAIA categories. The NAIA All-American is also proficient with the bat. Johnson holds the TNU record for career home runs and is moving up the NAIA list with 40 career home runs.
