LOUISVILLE, Ky. –Miami University’s Karli Spaid and Stoney Brook’s Dawn Bodrug were selected DI Louisville Slugger/NFCA Player of the Week and Wilson/NFCA Pitcher of the Week, respectively. The duo was honored for their outstanding play during the week of March 22-28.
Over a five-game stretch, Spaid posted a .500 average (8-for-16) with 13 RBI and eight runs scored, helping the RedHawks extend their win streak to 10 games. She recorded multiple RBI in all five contests, registered two runs and two hits in three of the five outings, and swiped six bases in six attempts (at least one in each game). In a mid-week matchup, Spaid posted two doubles, three RBI and two runs versus Dayton. The freshman second baseman’s hot bat continued into the weekend against Central Michigan. Spaid drove in three runs in games two and four, and homered in the final two contests.
Bodrug was nearly unhittable in her two starts last week, surrendering one hit and striking out 22 in 12 innings of work. The senior from Georgetown, Ontario twirled a no-hitter versus Binghamton and a one-hit shutout against Fairleigh Dickinson. Her no-no came in a 14-strikeout performance in the America East opener against the Bearcats. In a five-inning win over FDU, Bodrug sat down eight Knights and allowed a single.
