LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Ancia Purdy of Sonoma State and Katie Warrington of Wilmington University (Delaware) have been chosen as the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division II National Player and Pitcher of the Week for March 6, respectively.
A sophomore shortstop for the Seawolves, Purdy helped her squad to a 4-2 record last week, going 13-for-22 at the plate (.591) with six runs scored, two triples, three RBIs and eight stolen bases. The reigning California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Softball Player of the Week, she sported a .609 on-base percentage and a .773 slugging percentage, was errorless in 19 defensive chances at short and managed the walk-off RBI single during a 5-4, Saturday triumph over Cal State East Bay.
Senior pitcher Warrington registered a perfect 4-0 mark from the circle with a pair of shutouts, a 0.54 ERA and three complete games while allowing the opposition to hit at just a .169 clip. The Central Athletic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Softball Pitcher of the Week struck out an incredible 53 batters over just 26 innings and registered double-digit K’s in each of her four appearances. Included was a 17-strikeout effort during a 6-0 win over Felician and 14 K’s in an 8-0 victory over Immaculata.
