March 28, 2011
WASHINGTON, DC -- George Washington softball freshman Chelsea Lenhart has been named Atlantic 10 Softball Rookie of the Week, the league announced on Monday. This is the second straight week and the third time this season Lenhart has won the weekly honor.
Lenhart helped the Colonials (11-11-1) to a 2-2-1 record this week in centerfield. At the plate, she went 10-for-18 (.556) in five games, hitting five doubles, and batted in nine runs while not surrendering an out via strikeout.
The Phoenix, AZ, native was only held off the bases in the second game against Cornell on Tues. and picked up two of GW's five hits against Coppin State on Wed.
Lenhart batted in three runs and then scored the game-tying run in the first game against Dayton on a bases clearing double. Going 5-for-8 in two games against the Flyers, she legged out two doubles, stole two bases and drew two walks.
GW next takes the field on Wed., March 30, when they travel to take on Towson at 3:00 pm. The Colonials host A-10 contests against Saint Joseph's, Fri., April 1 at 3:00 pm, and Sat., April 2 at 12:00pm, and a doubleheader against Temple on Sun., April 3, beginning at 12:00pm.
