Maryland Independent - - Sports -

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.
