Georgia senior pitcher Brittany Gray will miss the remainder of the 2018 season and postseason with a right biceps injury, according to a team release.
Gray had only lost a single game in the 2018 season, boasting a 16-1 record that included twelve complete games. She leads the SEC with a 0.48 ERA in just over 100 innings pitched this season and boasts 134 strikeouts on the year.
A senior, Gray will not be eligible for a redshirt and thus will end her career following the 2018 season. She finishes her time as a Bulldog with sixty career victories in 126 appearances and thirty-nine complete games. She finishes her playing career with 495 strikeouts from the circle, just five Ks shy of the 500-strikeout threshold.
Gray began her career as the #2 pitcher behind Chelsea Wilkinson, and took over as the staff ace after Wilkinson’s graduation. In addition to her own numbers, she has provided veteran leadership to many of the pitchers that will have to take up in her stead for the remainder of the season.
Junior Kylie Bass and sophomore Mary Wilson Avant have taken the lion’s share of the load behind Gray during the first half of the year, while seven pitchers in all have seen action in the circle for the Bulldogs this season.
Georgia currently sports a 35-5 record and are 11-4 in SEC play, a mark that finds them in first place in the conference race.
