Krajewski honored in Baseball; Sullivan, Brault recognized in Women's Lax
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Three Plymouth State University student-athletes were recognized Monday with weekly recognition from the Little East Conference (LEC) for their performances in Panther action last week.
Senior Jarek Krajewski (Cranston, R.I./Bishop Hendricken) was named LEC Baseball Player of the Week, and junior Sam Sullivan (Canton, Mass.) and senior Meg Brault (South Windsor, Conn.) were selected LEC Women's Lacrosse Offensive Player and Goalie of the Week, respectively.
Krajewski is recognized for the first time this season and second time in his career, while Brault was selected for the second time this season and fourth time in her career and Sullivan was honored for the second week in a row.
A 6'2 first baseman, Krajewski hit safely in all six games last week, batting .391 (9-for-23) with five home runs and 14 RBIs in a 3-3 week (1-2 LEC). He batted .455 (5-for-11) in three LEC games with two home runs and six RBI. Krajewski went 2-for-4 with a home run and five RBI in Tuesday's win at Keene State and went 3-for-7 with a home run in a pair of losses to Southern Maine. He also had a home run and three RBI in a non-conference win Thursday at Rivier, and hit two home runs and drove in four Sunday in a win over New England College. A First Team All-LEC selection a year ago, Krajewski is now ranked second in the Little East with five home runs and seventh with 25 runs batted in.
The PSU baseball team took a 13-13 overall record into Monday's home game against Bates College. The Panthers are 3-6 in conference games heading into a mid-week home game against rival Keene State College.
A 5'4 attacker, Sullivan registered 15 points in a 3-0 week for PSU (2-0 LEC) with 14 goals and one assist, including 10 goals and one assist in two LEC games. She scored a career-high seven goals in Tuesday's win at Southern Maine; added three goals and an assist in a win over Rhode Island College on Sunday; and also scored four goals in a non-conference win Saturday over Wheaton. Sullivan has scored 38 goals and 44 points in 10 games, ranking fifth in the LEC this spring in goals and 13th in points.
A 5'8 netminder, Brault posted a 3-0 record last week with a 6.00 goals against average and a 58.3 save percentage. She made nine saves while allowing five goals in an LEC win at Southern Maine, and made 12 saves (10 goals allowed) in a non-conference win over Wheaton. She did not need to make a save in the first half of PSU's shutout over Rhode Island College. Brault ranks second in the Little East this spring with eight wins and a 7.36 goals against average, and ranked third with a 50.0 save percentage.
The PSU women have won eight straight games to improve to 8-2 overall and 4-0 in the LEC. The Panthers wrap up the regular season this week with two key conference games, Tuesday at Keene State College and Saturday at Eastern Connecticut State University. PSU and ECSU are tied for first place in the LEC with 4-0 marks, with KSC right behind at 3-1.
