Ceres High grad Callie Nunes made her debut with the Concordia University softball team earlier this month at the Desert Stinger Classic in Las Vegas.

Nunes' dominance in the circle during the opening week of the season (Feb. 2-4) earned her national, conference and tournament recognition.

Callie was named the Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association Division II Pitcher of the Week on Feb. 7.

She also received PacWest Pitcher of the Week honors on Feb. 5.

Nunes was selected to the Desert Stinger all-tournament team as well.

Callie was rewarded for filling a major role as Concordia won four of five games in Las Vegas.

She compiled a 2-0 record with a 0.51 ERA, 20 strikeouts and two saves in 13.2 innings of work.

She yielded one run on five hits and limited her opponents to a .106 batting average.

Nunes pitched a no-hitter, just the second in Desert Stinger history, during her first career start.

She tallied eight strikeouts in Concordia's 12-0 five-inning triumph over Western Oregon Feb. 3.

She made her college debut against Cal State Dominguez on Feb. 2.

She retired three consecutive batters in picking up a save in Concordia's 7-5 victory.

Callie tossed a complete game, striking out seven while leading the Eagles past No. 15 Cal State Monterey Bay, 3-1, on Feb. 4.

Nunes earned her second career save versus Western Washington. She struck out the final two batters of the game to secure the 7-6 win.
