SAN BRUNO, Calif. – San Diego senior catcher Mary Grabowski and Saint Mary’s senior pitcher Lujane Mussadi have been named the West Coast Conference Softball Players and Pitcher of the Week, the conference office announced Monday.
The honor is the first this season for Grabowski and the second for Mussadi.
Grabowski hit .444 with a pair of doubles against Loyola Marymount over the weekend to claim her first conference honor of the season. After going 1-for-3 in the first game of the series, the senior catcher went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a RBI in the second game. In the series finale, Grabowski went 1-for-3. Behind the plate, Grabowski helped the San Diego pitching staff allow just six earned runs in six games against the Lions, the league's leading offense heading into the week.
Mussadi claims her second conference pitcher of the week award this season after tossing two complete games to go 2-0 over the weekend as the Gaels defeated Pacific in a three-game series. Saturday, Mussadi went seven innings, allowed four hits, no runs and no walks while strkiking out two. Sunday, Mussadi went through the Tiger lineup in workman-like fashion to notch her second complete game win of the series. For the week, Mussadi tossed 14.0 inning and allowed just 12 hits, two earned runs, one walked batter and finished with a 1.00 ERA.
Saint Mary’s has won three of the last four Pitcher of the Week awards with Mussadi claiming two alongside teammate Katie Moss last week.
