March 5, 2018--Mount St. Mary's junior third baseman Lindsay Heinze (Charlotte Hall, Md.) has been named the Northeast Conference Softball Player of the Week. Heinze hit .381 and slugged .905 with three home runs and eight RBI in seven games for the Mount last week.
Heinze, a First Team All-NEC selection last season, went 8-for-21 with two doubles, three home runs and five runs scored in leading the Mount to a 3-4 record during their spring trip. She went 2-for-3 with a home, three RBI and two runs scored in the Mount's 12-3 win over Savannah State. Two days later, Henize homered in the Mount's 8-4 win over Delaware State, and then added a solo shot in the Mount's loss to USC Upstate later in the day.
Heinze leads the Mount with a .349 average, four home runs, 13 RBI and a .744 slugging percentage this year.
The Mountaineers are back in action on Saturday at the Towson Tiger Class on Saturday, March 10.
