Chelsea Thomas pitches for Mizzou in the 2013 season.


Mizzou softball seniors Jenna Marston and Chelsea Thomas were selected 19th and 20th overall Monday in the National Pro Fastpitch College Draft.

A catcher and shortstop in her time at Mizzou, Marston was picked by the Chicago Bandits. The two-time All-America pitcher Thomas was selected immediately after to the USSSA Pride.

Thomas has a 12-1 record in her final season with the Tigers and currently stands with 99 career victories at Mizzou.

The school’s all-time strikeouts leader has amassed 1,048 in her career.

Thomas has been an integral member of Mizzou’s last three Women’s College World Series squads (2009, 2010, 2011). Before helping the Tigers embark on their inaugural Southeastern Conference campaign, she was a two-time Big 12 Pitcher of the Year (2011, 2012).

Marston has played multiple positions in a Tiger uniform, starring at shortstop to begin her Mizzou career on the 2010 and 2011 Women's College World Series squads. She transitioned to catcher for her junior season and has caught for Thomas and the Tigers’ pitching staff since.

Marston currently ranks second in school history with 171 career runs scored, as well as 10th all-time at Mizzou with 194 hits. She earned CoSIDA First Team Academic All-America recognition in 2012.
