Pitt-Bradford duo collect AMCC weekly honors

Pitt-Bradford softball player Sydney Mosby was named the AMCC Pitcher of the Week Monday, and baseball player Derek Smith was tabbed the conference's Player of the Week.

In five starts last week, Mosby went 3-2 while compiling a 1.80 ERA in 35 innings pitched. She totaled 33 strikeouts, including a season-high nine against North Park, and walked just six. Over her final three starts, the junior allowed just a total of two earned runs.

Against New England, Mosby tossed a one-hit shutout, the team's third straight. She walked one, struck out four, and never let a runner move past second base. At the plate, the Sagamore Hills, Ohio, native hit .419 in 10 games while driving in six runs. It was the third time in her career she received the conference's weekly honor.

Smith, the reigning AMCC Player of the Year, picked up where he left off last May. In nine games last week, he hit .462, scored a team-high eight runs and totaled six RBIs. In the season-opener, the senior shortstop connected for a two-run home run, and he had a RBI double in the team's 4-2 upset of No. 24 Johns Hopkins.

The Jersey Shore, Pa., native swiped two bases and had six walks to just one strikeout. He was also named the AMCC Player of the Week for the third time in his career.
