LEC Softball Honor for PSC freshman

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The leading hitter on the Plymouth State College softball team has been honored by the Little East Conference for her standout play in four games last week.

Freshman Adriene Harvey (Nantucket, Mass.) was selected LEC Co-Rookie of the Week, the first Panther player to be honored this season. Harvey helped PSC split a pair of conference games against league-leading Western Connecticut. She shares this week's honor with Sarah McLean of the University of Southern Maine.

A power-hitting outfielder, Harvey batted .545 for the week, getting six hits in 11 at bats. She went 4-for-6 in the LEC twinbill at WCSU, going 1-for-3 with her fifth home run of the season in the opener and adding a 3-for-3 effort in the nightcap with an RBI and a run scored.

Harvey is enjoying an outstanding rookie campaign for PSC. She leads the team, and ranks among the LEC leaders, in batting average (.400), hits (32), triples (5), home runs (5), RBI (20) and total bases (59).

PSC, 12-12 overall and tied for fourth in the Little East at 3-3, plays a key LEC doubleheader Tuesday (Apr. 20) at D & M Park against arch-rival Keene State (3:30 p.m.). The Owls, defending LEC champions, come to Plymouth at 11-12 overall, 2-4 in the LEC.
