Little East Conference Weekly Honors for PSU Student-Athletes

Haversat, Sorrentino recognized in lacrosse; Miller honored in softball

            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 games last week during the school's spring break.

            Seniors Adam Haversat (Cape Elizabeth, Maine) and Nicco Sorrentino (Chelmsford, Mass.) were named LEC Men's Lacrosse Defensive and Offensive Players of the Week, respectively, and freshman Caitlyn Miller (Lee, N.H./Oyster River) was selected LEC Softball Pitcher of the Week. Haversat and Sorrentino helped the Panther men to a 1-1 record, while Miller led the softball team to a 5-3 week during the spring trip to Florida.

            A 6'0, 185-pound long stick midfielder, Haversat collected 11 ground balls and caused four turnovers in two games for the Panthers. He re­corded six ground balls and four caused turnovers in PSU's 10-6 win over Castleton, while also scoring his first goal of the season, and he picked up five ground balls in a loss at Plattsburgh. Haversat leads the team and ranks second in the Little East in ground balls this season with 29. He is also third in the LEC with 12 caused turnovers.

            A 6'1, 195-pound attackman, Sorrentino recorded five points in two games for PSU with four goals and an assist. He tallied three goals and one assist in PSU's 10-6 win over Castleton, and added one goal in a loss at Plattsburgh State. Sorrentino leads the team with 11 goals, five assists and 16 points, and ranks 10th in the LEC in both goals and points.

            The PSU men, 2-3, return to action on Wednesday, Mar. 29, at 6 p.m. at Clark University in Worcester, Mass.

            A 5'7 left-handed pitcher, Miller posted a 2-0 record with one save and a 2.23 ERA in four appearances for PSU. She pitched 15.2 innings, allowing five earned runs on 18 hits and just two walks, while striking out 10.

            Miller earned a save in her first appearance in PSU's 4-3 win over Worcester State, working two scoreless innings and allowing only one hit. She earned a win over Wesleyan, pitching 5.1 innings and allowing just two earned runs on seven hits, striking out three, and recorded a complete-game victory over Middlebury, surrendering just one run on five hits and a walk, striking out six.

            The rookie southpaw is tied for second in the LEC with four victories (4-0), ranks fourth with a 1.84 ERA, and ranks 10th with 17 strikeouts.

            PSU, 8-6 overall, is scheduled to play a pair of road doubleheaders this week, Wednesday at Salem State University and Sunday in the Little East Conference opener at the University of Massachusetts Boston.
