Former Pleasantville Softball Standout Chelsea Thomas is getting ready for her sophomore season at the University of Missouri.  Thomas became the Tigers number one pitcher last season as a freshman and led Missouri to the Women’s College World Series.  Thomas and her team are ranked ninth in the preseason National Fastpitch Coaches Association softball poll.  Thomas is also on the preseason Top 50 Watch List for the 2010 College Softball Player of the Year Award.  Last season…Thomas went 16-7.  She recorded ten shutouts, no hitters on back-to-back days, she tallied a 1.65 E-R-A, and was named the Big 12 Tournament Most Outstanding Player last season.  The Tigers will not have an easy season-opener this season as they travel to number two ranked Alabama for a three game series starting February 13th.
