In a Stanford Athletics release, sophomore pitcher Madi Schreyer announced that she plans to transfer to the University of Washington for the 2015-16 season.
Schreyer is the fourth pitcher that has left in the Cardinal program in the last three years, with Kelsey Stevens transferring to Oklahoma in 2013, Nyree White leaving the program in 2014 and Carley Hoover transferring to LSU last summer.
Schreyer was Stanford’s only healthy pitcher for much of the 2014 season, as she logged 242.1 innings in her freshman campaign. In spite of shouldering a tremendous burden in trying to hold the Stanford pitching staff together, Schreyer went 22-14 with a 3.70 ERA. For her efforts, Schreyer received All Pac-12 Honorable Mention.
This year, Schreyer got off to a tremendous start to her season, posting a 2.09 ERA in 50.1 innings. The Woodinville, Washington product also notched 38 strikeouts before she was lost for the season with an injury after an outing on March 1 against Weber State.
Stanford softball returns to action in February 2016.
