May 8, 2018--Mount St. Mary's freshman Amanda Berkley has been named the Northeast Conference Softball Rookie of the Week.
Berkley garners her second NEC Rookie of the Week award on the strength of a complete-game two-hit shutout of Sacred Heart. She allowed just three base runners the entire game to lead the Mount to a 1-0 win over a Pioneer team that will be the No. 3 seed in the upcoming NEC Tournament. In three appearances over the week, the Olney, Md., native finished with a 1-1 record and 3.34 ERA. Berkley ended the season with a 7-7 record and a 4.28 ERA in 90.0 innings of work.
The Mount finished the 2018 season 17-26-1 overall and 7-9 in the NEC.
