Some news from the sports desk:
College junior Rebecca Duncan (Simi Valley, CA) has been selected as the New England Small College Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week for play ending Sunday, April 21.
Duncan tossed a one-hit shutout in a 2-0 win over Amherst to allow the Ephs to clinch the NESCAC West Division. She did not allow a Mammoth hit until the sixth inning and finished the game with four strikeouts.
She is currently 10-2 from the circle with a 2.20 ERA while batting .324 this season with 2 home runs, 18 RBI and 18 runs scored.
The Ephs have won 15 straight games and clinched the NESCAC West Division crown Sunday. They are in action at home Wednesday for a doubleheader with Smith College beginning at 4 p.m.
This has been a good season for the Williams softball team, which could prove instrumental in Williams’ quest for a 22nd Directors Cup.
