SanFranPreps.com Player of the Week: Chloe Roddy, senior first baseman, Lowell softballl
All of the Cardinals in the lineup hit against Washington in the Academic Athletic Association championship game on Wednesday, but Roddy did the most damage.
Her first hit was an RBI double, then came a lined home run to left field and a towering shot to center, to give her five RBIs on the day.
“Chloe is an anomaly and physically, her strength is unbelievable,” Lowell head coach Sascha Taylor-Ray after the AAA championship game. “She said she felt it today and she was even asking me what the distances were on the fences at practice yesterday, so she could see what she had to do.”
Roddy followed that up with a 2-for-2 performance against Skyline in Game 1 of the Transbay series, with a double, a triple and three RBIs.
Honorable mention: Ben Carrasco, sophomore pitcher, Stuart Hall baseball
The left-hander had a rough week at the plate, but more than made up for it on the mound on Saturday.
Carrasco struck out nine and allowed only a single run to collect the win in the Knights’ victory over Marin Academy, to clinch their first Bay Counties League West title in school history.
Honorable mention: Austin Fusco, junior center fielder, Waldorf baseball
Before International rallied back to edge the Wolverines in the Bay Counties League Central playoffs, Fusco made a clear case to be the game’s MVP.
In the leadoff spot, Fusco went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and two doubles to move his batting average up to .300.
