MAAC Stars Of The Week* 3/19/12

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

Player Of The Week

Shannon Jones, Siena Saints

Shannon had a great week in Baltimore, hitting safely in all seven games the Saints played. She hit for a .522 average, with a home run and eight RBIs. She also hit five doubles and a triple. Shannon raised her average to .435, tops in the MAAC.

Pitcher Of The Week

Becca Trott, Fairfield Stags

Becca quite simply pitched out of her mind last week in Florida. She had a record of 5-1 with a miniscule .053 ERA. But she also pitched fabulous games against two nationally ranked opponents, beating South Florida 2-1, then losing a pitcher's duel to Florida State 2-0, a game in which she allowed only four hits to the Seminoles. Sarah who? (Just kidding Ms. Minice!)

Co-Freshmen Of The Week

Meg Volz, Siena Saints

Stephanie Viggiano, Siena Saints

The Saints have some exciting new players on this year's roster, two of whom had a great seven games in Baltimore. Meg hit for a .412 average, while Stephanie hit .417. Too close to call, so they share this week's honor.
