Humboldt State’s Lizzy Prescott is among the six former student athletes and coaches who will be inducted into the California Collegiate Athletic Association Hall of Fame as members of the Class of 2020, it was announced by the conference office this week.
Prescott enjoyed a stellar career during her four years playing for legendary head coach Frank Cheek at HSU, the first two of which were when the Jacks competed in the GNAC.
She was named conference Most Valuable Pitcher three times, including a CCAA selection in 2007 and 2008.
The three-time All-American is one of the greatest pitchers in Humboldt State history, capping her own legendary career by pitching three consecutive shutouts to lead the Jacks to a national championship in 2008.
She was named championship Most Valuable Player.
Prescott also holds several school records, and her 132 career victories are fifth all-time in NCAA Division-II history.
After graduating from HSU with a degree in kinesiology, the Castro Valley native enjoyed a brief stint playing post-collegiately in the Netherlands.
She joins Cheek in the CCAA Hall of Fame, the only two Lumberjacks to hold the honor.
The CCAA Hall of Fame was created during the 2013-14 academic year, in conjunction with the celebration of the conference’s 75th anniversary.
