Barwick and Therres Earn CAC Player of the Week Awards

York junior pitcher Brittany Therres and senior Spartan first baseman Michelle Barwick were selected as the CAC Softball Athletes of the Week for March 7, 2011 as they led the Spartans to a 7-1 week during their annual spring trip to Myrtle Beach, SC.

Therres won four of her five decisions in the first week of the season, posting a 1.33 ERA and two shutouts on the team's season-opening Spring Break trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C. Therres held opponents to a .216 batting average and struck out 18 in 27 innings. She also contributed two hits, five RBI and three runs scored in a victory over Maine-Presque Island.

Barwick led the Spartans offense on the trip as she hit .435 for the week (10-for-23) with three doubles, a triple, five runs scored and 12 RBI. Her .480 on-base percentage and .652 slugging percentage included a career-best four hit performance with four RBI in a victory over CAC rival Mary Washington.

The Spartans travel to Salisbury to participate in the Salisbury Invitational starting Friday morning.
