March 19, 2013
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington freshman Carlee Gray was named Atlantic 10 Softball Rookie of the Week for games played March 11-17, the conference announced on Tuesday.
Gray led GW to a perfect 5-0 week, hitting .429 (6-for-14) with seven RBIs and five runs scored. She was also hit by a pitch four times, reaching base at a .556 clip, and slugged .714 with a double and a home run. In addition, the first baseman did not commit an error in 36 chances.
Gray broke a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the sixth inning against Ohio State with a grand slam - her first career home run - as the Colonials defeated the Buckeyes, 8-4. She then reached base in all four plate appearances in a 9-7 win over Akron, going 2-for-2 with a two-run double and two runs scored. Gray also had two hits and an RBI in GW's 7-4 victory over the Zips on Saturday.
A native of Elk Grove, Calif., Gray is batting a team-best .381 with five doubles and 14 RBIs in her inaugural collegiate campaign.
Gray is the first Colonials' player to earn A-10 Rookie of the Week honors since teammate Victoria Valos on April 9, 2012.
GW (11-11) puts its six-game winning streak on the line on Wednesday evening when it visits Virginia. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
