Bennett, a native of Colbert, Okla., who is entering her junior season turned in nine saves to lead the nation in the category for the season.

She posted a 21-5 record last season in the circle with a 2.71 ERA while helping guide the Savage Storm to a trip to the NCAA Division II Central Region tournament and a No. 2 national ranking.
