Westwood, MA --- WPI senior RiAnna May (Westminster, CO) has been selected as the NEWMAC Softball Athlete of the Week. It is the Engineers first outright softball athlete of the week nod since Lindsay Gurska in March of 2016.

May led the Engineers with a .500 batting average and 13 RBI. The senior also totaled 22 bases, 12 runs scored, three walks and two stolen bases, as well as a double, triple and home run. After going 2-for-3 versus Heidelberg (OH), May collected multiple hits in the final six games of the trip. The run was highlighted by a 3-for-4 performance against Bluffton (OH), three RBI versus Centenary (NJ) and both stolen bases opposite Simmons.
Emerson freshman Neely Eddleston (Wareham, MA) claimed NEWMAC Pitcher of the Week accolades.
Softball (9-3) returns to action Tuesday, March 20 with a trip to Fitchburg State.
