Freshman first baseman Michelle Surdan (Acton, Mass.) of the Mount Saint Mary College

softball team was named Skyline Conference Softball Player of the Week for the week ending March 23,

2014, as announced by the conference office. She is the second straight Knight to earn this

distinction. She was also named Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Metro Softball Player

of the Week.


Surdan batted .500 and slugged .857 in a 4-0 weekend for the Knights. She totaled seven hits in 14

at bats, including two doubles and her first collegiate home run. She knocked in eight runs this week

and scored five times herself. She also stole a base and walked twice. She hit 2-for-3 in game one of

the team’s doubleheader against Farmingdale State College, picking up two RBI and a run scored. She

went 2-for-2 in Sunday’s opener against NYU-Poly with her first home run, four RBI and two runs. She

currently leads the Knights with a .500 batting average on the season.


Sophomore starting pitcher Victoria Goldbach (Middle Village, N.Y.), last week’s Skyline Player of the

Week, was named to the Skyline Honor Roll this week after tossing a pair of complete game victories

over Farmingdale and NYU-Poly this past weekend.
