MAAC Stars Of The Week* 2/28/11

*Not the official MAAC Players Of The Week, but as chosen by this blog

Player Of The Week

Jessika-Jo Sandrini, Siena Saints

Jessika-Jo began her college career with a pow! She hit for a .600 average this past weekend, including her first career homer, 2 doubles, a slugging percentage of 1.100 (!) and 5 RBIs. She also pitched two games, going 1-1 including a 5-1 win over North Carolina Central in which she allowed no earned runs and struck out 8.

Pitcher Of The Week

Sarah Jackson, Iona Gaels

Sarah was lock down good this weekend throwing a pair of shutouts. In her 2-0 win over Farleigh Dickinson, Sarah struck out 14 batters. In her 4-0 win over Monmouth, she struck out 7 batters and did not allow a runner past first base. Sarah is a perfect 4-0 this young season.

Freshman Of The Week

Lauren Liseth, Fairfield Stags

Lauren actually began her college career by striking out twice, but then went on a tear. She hit for a .412 average this weekend, including her first career homer, a triple, 3 doubles, 3 RBIs, 7 runs and a stolen base. She was 3 for 3 vs. Towson, and showed her versatility playing both shortstop and catcher.
