Bauder and Klobosits Sweep PSAC Weekly Awards
Courtney Bauder earned PSAC Central Player of the Week honors while Caitlin Klobosits picked up Pitcher of the Week accolades as the Mansfield softball duo swept the division weekly awards after clinching the first division title in school history.
Bauder was a huge part of the Mountaineer's incredible performance against a pair of tough divisional foes to lock up the PSAC Central title. The sophomore hit .550 from the plate while extending her hitting streak to 14 games. Bauder racked up 11 hits, 10 RBIs and nine runs during the week including two triples in a sweep over Lock Haven and a home run in a win over Le Moyne.
Bauder is hitting .341 for the season and ranks second on the team in home runs with six.
Klobosits earned Pitcher of the Week honors for the third time this season after going 2-0 in the circle with complete-game wins over Lock Haven and Bloomsburg. The senior southpaw earned her 12th victory of the season which is the most for a Mansfield pitcher since 2000. Klobosists posted a 1.68 ERA over her three appearances this week.
Klobosits has a 1.90 ERA in her 21 appearances on the year while limiting opponents to a .206 batting average.
