KANSAS CITY, MO.--- Lisa Scheer, a freshman pitcher/third baseman for St. Joseph's College (Brooklyn) softball team, was named today as the recipient of the Association of Division III Independents Student-Athletes of the Month award for April 2009. The Lady Bears went 20-3 in the month of April, largely in part to the outstanding all-around play of Scheer.

In the circle, Scheer posted a 10-1 record with a 1.26 earned run average in 72 innings of work. The freshman ace tossed three shutouts, and struck out 78 while issuing only 10 walks. In the field, Scheer was perfect in 51 attempts that included 12 put-outs and 39 assists. Scheer also received the AD3I Player of the Week honors for the week ending April 26, when she went 3-0 including a one-hit, seven-inning, shutout over New York University where she struck out 11 and walked one.
