GREENVILLE, Pa. (March 20) – The Bison swept the weekly Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) awards following their performance at the PFX Spring Games in Clermont, Florida last week.
Junior Aubrey Baehr (Evans City, Pa./Seneca Valley) was named the PAC Hitter of the Week, junior Cassie Weiss (Avella, Pa./McGuffey) garnered conference pitcher of the week, while freshman Sammie Weiss (Avella, Pa./McGuffey) was tabbed the PAC Rookie of the Week.
Baehr earned hitter of the week after hitting .416 (10-for-24) with a team-high seven RBI last week. She also led the Bison with five extra-base hits, including a home run and four doubles, and scored six runs. In the team's 9-8 come-from-behind win over Salve Regina, Baehr came through in the seventh inning with a two-out, two-RBI single to tie the game and send it into extra innings where the Bison went on to win.
Cassie Weiss was named the PAC Pitcher of the Week after she went 2-3 with a 2.25 earned run average in the circle with a trio of complete games during the week. She finished with 41 strikeouts and only eight walks issued and currently leads the league with 58 strikeouts. Weiss fanned a career-high 19 and yielded one run (zero earned) on two hits with zero walks in the team's 1-0 eight-inning loss to Hood this past Thursday.
Sammie Weiss was selected as the conference rookie of the week after she batted .480 (12-for-25) and had a base-hit in seven of the team's eight games last week. She compiled a .535 on-base percentage and added two RBI and three runs scored to her final total. Weiss went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a pair of runs scored in the team's 9-8 win over Salve Regina.
Bethany returns to action on Thursday, March 23 when they host Marietta in the team's home opener. The Bison re-scheduled their game with Marietta from Wednesday to Thursday at 3:30 p.m. due to an unfavorable forecast.
