Softball's Courtney Wallace Named GNAC Player of the Week

Courtney Courtney Wallace (Steep Falls, ME/Bonny Eagle) enjoyed a red-hot week both with the stick and in the field in which she homered in three of four games, including both games of a double header at Mount Ida. As a result, she was named Great Northeast Athletic Conference Player of the Week, which the league announced Tuesday morning.

The senior catcher hit .538 for the week and clubbed her way to a whopping 1.461 slugging percentage. In addition to her seventh-inning home run in a tied game at Simmons, Wallace secured the final outs of the sixth and seventh innings on collisions at home plate in Game 2 against the Sharks.

Wallace is second on the team in hitting, with a .438 average, hitting .542 in eight conference games with all of her team-best four of her home runs in league play. She leads the team with 16 RBI's, five doubles and an .875 slugging percentage and is perfect in 80 chances in the field.

A First Team All-GNAC catcher in all of her first three seasons, Wallace's Gators are in action Tuesday afternoon, playing host to Emerson College at 3:30. After hitting the road on Friday and Saturday at Norwich and St. Joseph's (ME), Pine Manor returns home Sunday at noon against Johnson & Wales.
