Binghamton University freshman shortstop Caitlyn Friis has been named the America East Softball Rookie of the Week for Feb. 13-19. She earned the honor by virtue of her performance this past weekend at the season-opening Florida Gulf Coast Tournament. In five games, Friis hit a team-best .429 scored a pair of runs and drove in another one. She went a perfect 4-for-4 against Delaware on Feb. 17 and hit safely in three of the five games. In addition, Friis recorded a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage in 19 chances, all at the shortstop position.
“Caitlyn had a great weekend,” head coach Michelle Burrell said. “She played with a lot of confidence and was very poised throughout the entire tournament.”
Caitlyn played for ROCK Gold Coach Garvey from 2003-2011.
