Nicole Myers (born July 31, 1980) is an American, former collegiate All-American, right-handed hitting softball pitcher originally from St. Petersburg, Florida. She played for the Florida Atlantic University Owls from 1999 to 2002. She owns numerous school records in both offense and pitching categories and is one of three players to make both the 1,000 strikeouts and 50 home runs clubs for a career.
Myers was named the 1999 FAU “Female Athlete of The Year” as well as earning her first All-Atlantic Sun citation. Her doubles, home runs (led the conference) and on-base percentage totals were all new school records and her RBIs and slugging percentage were merely second best. All those records still rank top-5 all-time for a season.
On March 16, 1999, Myers tallied her first career no-hitter against the Hartford Hawks.
As a sophomore, Myers tossed 4 no-hitters, one on March 17, 2000 where she struck out 17 batters in regulation to defeat the Rutgers Scarlet Knights for a career high. Again earning conference distinctions, Myers added “Player of The Year” honors. Myers broke school season records for strikeouts, ERA, WHIP, strikeout ratio and shutouts (another conference record); the WHIP was a career best. On the offensive side, she added 11 home runs and posted a new base on balls record.
