Softball Sweeps NECC Weekly Awards

Freshman Gemma Landry was named both NECC Player and Rookie of the Week while sophomore Katelyn Lipsky was tabbed NECC Pitcher of the Week. The duo led the Mariners to a 4-0 record last week that included sweeps against Norwich University and Roger Williams University.

Landry turned in a monster week at the plate to earn honors for the first time this season. She batted .625 with four doubles, two homers and six RBI over the four games to set the tone from leadoff spot. She went 6-for-8 with four doubles, a homer and five RBI in the sweep of Norwich, hitting her first collegiate dinger in the opener while adding three doubles in the nightcap. She also homered at Roger Williams and finished with two hits in each game, giving her a team-high 10 for a week in which she slugged 1.250.

Lipsky earned pitching honors for the second time this season (March 14), going 2-0 with a 0.58 ERA in two starts last week. She struck out a career-high 11 batters in a 14-1 win over Norwich in which she allowed only three hits over 5.0 innings. She then recorded her first shutout of the season in a 3-0 victory at Roger Williams, scattering eight hits over 7.0 innings while fanning four.
