As the Hillcats number one pitcher in 2012 as a freshman Fleck led the team in innings pitched , strikeouts, complete games, appearances, and wins. She finished her freshman season with a 2.77 ERA and was one win shy of the single season school record.

Loy and Fleck are joined by members of Oklahoma Baptist, St. Gregory’s and Oklahoma City from the Sooner Athletic Conference. The SAC totaled seven of the 11 student-athletes recognized in the District 7 College Division Team.
