GW Softball's Mary Wiley Tabbed A-10 Rookie of the Week
Freshman Hit .500 in Colonials' 3-1-1 Weekend
March 10, 2014
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington freshman Mary Wiley was named Atlantic 10 Softball Rookie of the Week for games played March 3-9, the conference announced on Tuesday.
Wiley hit .500 (8-for-16) with two doubles and four RBIs to lead GW to a 3-1-1 record at the Colonials Tournament over the weekend.
After going 1-for-3 with a double and scoring the Colonials' lone run in the tournament opener, Wiley combined to go 4-for-6 with three RBIs in GW's two wins on Saturday against Binghamton and Howard, and she stole the first base of her career against the Bearcats. Wiley then posted the second three-hit game of her young career on Sunday against Wagner, going 3-for-3 with a double and an RBI.
A native of Harrington Park, N.J., Wiley is hitting a team-high .348 on the season and also leads the Colonials with a .444 on-base percentage.
Wiley is the first Colonials' player to earn A-10 Rookie of the Week honors since teammate Meghan Rico on April 15, 2013.
GW (4-14-1) hosts Mount St. Mary's in a doubleheader on Tuesday at the GW Softball Field on the Mount Vernon Campus. First pitch is slated for 3 p.m.
