MAAC Stars Of The Week* 4/18/11

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

Player Of The Week

Melanie Gettins, Iona Gaels
Melanie is recognized for one play she made, but it was a huge play that may have saved Iona's season. After her team had surrendered a 2 out, 3 run homer to Niagara in the 7th inning of Saturday's MAAC game, Melanie hit a dramatic 13th inning homer to win the game, and give the Gaels new life.
Pitcher Of The Week

Sarah Minice, Fairfield Stags

Sarah started and won both MAAC games against Canisius this past week, moving her team into first place, and finished with an ERA of 1.16 while striking out 11. She improved her MAAC leading ERA to a stingy 1.69.

Freshman Of The Week

Katie Bowen, Manhattan Lady Jaspers

Katie hit .357 with 5 RBIs this past week. In the second game against first place Marist, she drove home the tying and winning runs, and also earned the win in the circle.
