After a sensational week that earned her CUNYAC Player of the Week honors, College of Staten Island softball senior Brittany Smith has doubled up, taking home ECAC Metro NY/NJ Player of the Week honors as well, it was announced yesterday. The Dolphins went 6-2 last week, with Smith leading the charge.
CSI’s all-time career leader in runs scored and stolen bases, Smith did plenty of that last week, scoring 19 runs in eight games, stealing 12 bases. Her five stolen bases against Baruch College on Saturday were the most ever in a single game, and Smith added a healthy .594 batting average to boot. Of her 19 total hits in the week, five were for extra-bases, including a three-run inside-the-park homerun against John Jay College on Sunday. Smith also added eight RBI on the week and four doubles.
Smith’s monster week raised her batting average this season to .419, and she leads the team with 43 runs scored and 26 stolen bags. She is also third on the team with 14 walks.
CSI resumes their slate of games against nationally-ranked Rowan University tomorrow at 4pm for a non-conference doubleheader. It will also be Senior Day at the College, as CSI will honor both Smith and third-year senior Danielle Locke.
