Freshman softball pitcher Becky Anderson earned Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Week honors for her efforts last week.

Anderson helped the Patriots win their first CAA series of the season with a pair of victories over the University of Delaware, including a 6-3 win on April 28 and a 9-0 shutout victory the proceeding day.

The freshman finished the week hitting .308 and earned a 1-2 record in the circle, along with a save, during four appearances. Anderson finished the week pitching 19.1 innings, while giving up four earned runs and fanning nine batters. Anderson tossed five shutout innings and only allowed three hits in Mason’s nine-run win against the Blue Hens.

Offensively, the rookie recorded four hits and four RBI on the week for the Patriots.

The Patriots will wrap up their conference regular season this weekend when they host Drexel University for a three-game series, including a doubleheader on May 5 at noon.
