Baseball 
Player of the Week
Anthony Runfola, Fr., C, Haverford
Phoenix, Ariz. | Brophy College Preparatory
Runfola had a standout week for the Fords at the Gene Cusic Collegiate Classic, recording three two-hit games, and unleashing a two-homer, five-RBI game against Muskingum, launching a grand slam for his first collegiate home run to spark a seven-run first inning rally and following that up with a solo shot in the fourth inning. For the week, Runfola went hit .636 (7-for-11) with two home runs, three runs scored, 10 RBIs with a .714 on-base percentage and 1.182 slugging percentage. He registered at least one RBI in all five contests. 
 
Baseball 
Pitcher of the Week
Beau Dana, Sr., RHP, Dickinson
Marblehead, Mass. | Marblehead

Softball
Player of the Week
Olivia McClammy, Fr., C/UT, Swarthmore
Riverside, Conn. | Greenwich
McClammy helped the Garnet to a 5-0 week in Florida, hitting .600 (9-for-15) with eight RBIs, eight runs scored and a walk-off homer against Thomas in a marathon game. McClammy notched a .650 on-base percentage and 867 slugging percentage with four walks, three stolen bases and no strikeouts. Against nationally-ranked Roanoke, McClammy walked twice and scored a run. The freshman registered at least one hit and one RBI in all five games last week.

Pitcher of the Week
Paige Forry, Fr., P, Gettysburg
Reading, Pa. | Schuylkill Valley 
Forry went 3-0 with a 1.47 ERA and 14 strikeouts over 19 innings of work during Gettysburg's visit to the Fastpitch Dreams Classic. The lefthander earned a win in her collegiate debut with four shutout innings of relief against Centenary and she didn't allow a run in either of her final two appearances against Fitchburg State and Cedar Crest. Against Cedar Crest, Forry carried a perfect game into the sixth inning and a no-hitter into the seventh before settling on a one-hit complete game with five strikeouts. 
 

Men's Lacrosse
Offensive Player of the Week
George Raymond, Jr., A, Gettysburg
Darien, Conn. | Suffield Academy
Raymond totaled seven points for the second time this season as 10th-ranked Gettysburg pummeled Ohio Northern 17-6 on March 11. Raymond tallied two goals and five assists including the game's first goal and assists to four different teammates during the game. He also set a new personal mark for assists. Raymond ranks second in the CC in points (22) and is tied for the league lead in assists with 11.
 
Men's Lacrosse
Defensive Player of the Week
Kyle Craig, Jr., D, Franklin & Marshall
Wantagh, N.Y. | Wantagh
Craig caused three turnovers while picking up a trio of ground balls in an 11-6 victory over Kenyon on Wednesday evening. The Diplomats defense held Kenyon to just three goals across the final three quarters, clamping down on the upstart visitors.
 

Women's Lacrosse
Offensive Player of the Week
Emma Miller, So., A/M, McDaniel
Ellicott City, Md. | Marriotts Ridge
Miller led the Green Terror to a 2-0 week with eight goals and two assists. She recorded four goals in a 13-6 win over Hood and four goals and two assists in the 19-5 win over Elizabethtown. She also had eight draw controls, five ground balls, and four caused turnovers on the week, and connected on 50% of her shot attempts. 
 
Women's Lacrosse
Defensive Player of the Week
Jessica Calloway, Sr., GK, Bryn Mawr
New Windsor, Md. | Good Counsel
Calloway led Bryn Mawr to a pair of wins with 14 saves and a 7.33 goal against average for the week. The senior tallied two saves and allowed just four goals in limited work against Rutgers Camden as the Owls coasted to a big win. Then, Calloway made 12 stops against Immaculata on Wednesday to give Bryn Mawr a chance to grab a 10-9 win in overtime. One of those stops came in the final seconds of regulation, as Calloway made a tremendous save on an Immaculata shot just before the final horn that would have given the hosts the win. Instead, Calloway is now 4-0 on the season along with her Owls, and she leads the conference in both save percentage and goals against average. She is also currently 19th nationally in goals against average.
