ROCKY HILL, Conn.—For the second time in three weeks and fifth time in her career, Jess Greenspan (Rocky Hill, Conn.) has been named the Little East Conference Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced Monday afternoon.
Greenspan led the Beacons to their first-ever conference sweep over Keene State College on Saturday. The junior righty threw 13.1 of the 15 innings and allowed just nine hits, three walks and two earned runs during that span. She also struck out five batters.
On Thursday, Greenspan set the program record for career appearances by a Beacons pitcher with her 80th time in the circle.
