Sadler Takes Home Final ECC Rookie of the Week Honors

St. Thomas Aquinas College Softball player Melissa Sadler was named the East Coast Conference Rookie of the Week on Monday, following the Spartans 2-6 week.

Sadler posted a hot .435 batting average, going 10-for-23 at the plate, with 3 RBIs and 2 runs scored in 8 contests during last week. Missy also contributed a double and was walked twice by opposing pitchers, while putting up a .480 on-base percentage, a .478 slugging percentage and a 0.958 on-base percentage plus slugging.

The freshman outfielder from Milton, N.Y. has also been playing tough defense for the Spartans, as Sadler posted a .917 fielding percentage, while making only 1 error in her 8 games last week in centerfield.

The 18-26 Spartans concluded the 2017 Season at Molloy College on Sunday, and with only one graduating senior departing the roster and a bevy of incoming recruits to join the current cast, the future of Spartan Softball looks to be brighter than ever.
