Nottingham Named Centennial Player of the Week
Freshman Bats Team-High .571 In 4-0 Week To Earn First CC Weekly Award
LANCASTER, PA -- Washington College freshman first baseman/outfielder Shaelan Nottingham (Ocean City, MD/Stephen Decatur) has been named the Centennial Conference Softball Player of the Week by the conference office for the week of March 8-14, 2010. Nottingham hit a team-best .571 in helping the Shorewomen go a perfect 4-0 during that time frame.
She went 8-for-14 from the plate and was also tops on the squad in hits (8), doubles (3), slugging percentage (.786), on-base percentage (.600) and tied for the team high in total bases (11). In the 7-6 eight-inning win over Olivet on March 8, Nottingham drove in the game-tying run in the bottom of the eighth on a double and would come around to score the game-winning run two batters later. She went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the victory. In the victory over Wheelock later that day, she went 4-for-5 with five RBI. Nottingham had two two-RBI hits in the contest. Both games were in Fort Myers, FL.
For the season, Nottingham is hitting .476 (10-for-21) with eight RBI and team-high three doubles.
She is the second Shorewoman in a row to win Centennial Conference Player of the Week honors. Sophomore outfielder Leigh Carbutt (Collegeville, PA/Perkiomen Valley) won the award last week.
Washington College (5-1) hosts Widener on Wednesday afternoon at 3:00 p.m.
