Emily Jarvis Named Softball Patriot League Player & Rookie Of The Week

WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross freshman outfielder Emily Jarvis (Hopkinton, Mass.) has been named both Patriot League Player and Patriot League Rookie of the Week, as announced by the league. Jarvis led the team with a .414 batting average over 10 contests last week at the Rebel Spring Games in Kissimmee, Fla.

Jarvis recorded her first career hit in her second at-bat of the season and first career home run (and RBI) in her third at-bat of the season in Holy Cross' season opener versus South Dakota (3/3). She also recorded her first stolen base in that game against the Coyotes. The rookie hit her second career home run against Penn (3/4) and swiped three bases as the Crusaders defeated Grambling State (3/7), 15-8. Jarvis holds the highest batting average (.414) on the team of any player that played in all 10 games last week and leads the team in runs scored (10), hits (12), doubles (3), total bases (21) and steals (6). She is also tied for first in home runs (2).

This marks the first Holy Cross Patriot League Player of the Week award since Sam Fregenti (Melville, N.Y.) on May 9, 2011 and the first Rookie of the Week since Julia Barrett (Gardner, Mass.) earned the recognition on March 14, 2011. The Crusaders are 3-7 on the season and will return to action on Friday, March 15, against Yale at 9:30 a.m. at the Stony Brook Invitational.

Junior Kelliner Croushore (Claremont, Calif.) was also recognized by College Sports Madness as the Patriot League Player of the Week. Croushore batted an even .300 at the Rebel Spring Games and was tied for the team lead with two long balls. She holds a .533 slugging percentage and is tied for second on the team with 16 total bases.
