The Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) named Gannon second baseman Jen Moran Western Division Athlete of the Week and Olivia Gumbita Pitcher of the Week.
Moran, a Fox Chapel graduate, went 3-for-7 from the plate last week and provided the game-winning heroics in game one against Lake Erie on Wednesday. The Storm and Lady Knights were deadlocked at zero headed to the bottom of the seventh inning as Moran stepped to the plate as the lead-off batter.
She worked the count until show found her pitch and crushed it over the left field wall to send the Lady Knights on to victory, 1-0. It was Moran’s first home run of the season and 10th in her career. The senior is batting .317 with seven runs and seven RBI this season.
