Rollin’s Roser and Winona’s Struzynski Named Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division II National Players of the Week

STARKVILLE, Miss. – Junior Christine Roser of Rollins and junior pitcher Stacey Struzynski of Winona State have been named the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division II National Player and Pitcher of the Week, respectively, for games played during the week of March 1-7. 

Roser helped guide the Tars to a 5-1 record at the West Georgia Invitational last week by going 11-for-20 with nine runs, 13 RBIs, one double, one triple, three homeruns, three walks and just one strikeout. 

The Winter Springs, Fla., native hit a solo homerun in Rollins’ 2-1 win over Columbus State and recorded five RBIs in the 13-4 win over North Alabama. She finished the week with a 1.150 slugging percentage and a .542 on-base percentage. 

The 20th–ranked Tars are currently 13-1 on the year. 

No. 5 Winona State opened the season with a six-game sweep at the National Training Center in Clermont, Fla., thanks in large part to 20 scoreless innings from Struzynski. 

The Homewood, Ill., native gave up just eight hits and five walks while not allowing any runs and striking out 34 over three straight shutout wins. 

Struzynski tossed a pair of one-hitters on the week, against No. 9 Kutztown and Dominican (NY), to go along with two 10-plus strikeout performances.
