Nikki Waters was darn near unhittable when she stepped into the circle. She went 15-2 overall and was a perfect 9-0 against Missouri Valley Conference competition.
However, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that Waters is transferring to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga to be closer to home.
That's a big blow to one of the Valley's best pitching staffs. SIU was already slated to lose lefty Katie McNamara to graduation. But don't fret Saluki Nation, head coach Kerri Blaylock is one of the best recruiters in the country and will likely have a resolution to this situation before you could blink twice.
