Siena softball freshman Alyssa Lancaster (Hanover Park, Ill.) won her first career conference weekly award, taking home the MAAC Rookie of the Week honor. Lancaster helped the Saints to five conference victories in their six games this week.
Lancaster was the only Saint to record a hit in all six games during Siena’s 5-1 week. The freshman batted .474 and drove in six. In the upset win against first-place Fairfield, Lancaster recorded the lone hit for the Saints, but ended up driving in what would become the winning run of the game. In the series against Rider, she batted .571 (4-for-7) including a two-out two RBI double to break a 3-3 tie in the sixth.
The Saints are back in action this weekend for two key conference doubleheaders at Saint Peter’s and Manhattan.
