Player of the Week honors go to Heinze
Mount St. Mary’s junior outfielder Rachel Heinze, a St. Mary’s Ryken High School graduate from Charlotte Hall, has been named the Northeast Conference Player of the Week. Heinze capped her historic junior season going 5 for 6 with two home runs, two doubles, four runs scored and three RBIs in the Mount’s sweep of Wagner on Saturday.
Heinze, a three-time NEC Player of the Week winner this season, swatted 19 home runs in 2016, shattering the NEC single-season mark. Heinze also eclipsed Liz Christiansen’s (200913) school career record with 26 round trippers with a walk-off, two-run homer in the Mount’s 4-3 win over Wagner in the final game of the season.
Heinze finished the week hitting .833 with a staggering 2.167 slugging percentage, and reached base six of the seven times she stepped up to the plate. Heinze leads the NEC with a .840 slugging percentage and finished the year with a team leading .347 batting average, .450 onbase percentage and 44 runs scored.
