BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Two Mountain Hawks have earned weekly Patriot League awards for their performances at the Radford Invitational, as announced by the league Monday. Senior Jen Colquhoun received her second straight Player of the Week award, while freshman Emily Bausher earned Rookie of the Week honors. Fellow freshman Cassie Waggy won the Rookie of the Week award last week, giving Lehigh back-to-back winners in both categories.
The Mountain Hawks went 1-3 on the weekend in Virginia, highlighted by a 6-0 shutout of Binghamton on Sunday.
Colquhoun received her second straight award after belting two-run home runs in each of the Mountain Hawks’ games Sunday. Her offensive outburst propelled the Mountain Hawks past Binghamton Sunday. Colquhoun also went 3-for-4 with a run scored in the game against Binghamton Saturday. For the week, she hit .357 (5-for-14), with a .786 slugging percentage.
The Oak Park, Calif. native continues to lead the Mountain Hawks in almost every offensive category for the season, including batting average (.426), runs (16), hits (29), home runs (five), RBIs (16) and slugging percentage (.809). Colquhoun has six three-hit games already this season.
Bausher allowed just two earned runs in 13 total innings this weekend. She struck out six in a loss to Radford on Saturday before pitching a one-hit complete-game shutout over Binghamton Sunday in which she struck out 15 Bearcats, setting a career-high and falling just one short of the school single game record.
The New Egypt, N.J. native holds a 1.56 ERA and is 5-5 in 11 appearances this season. She has struck out 77 over 58.1 innings, and has thrown a pair of shutouts including a no-hitter against South Dakota on March 4. This is Bausher’s second Patriot League Rookie of the Week award. She was also named Patriot League Pitcher of the Week a day after her no-hitter.
The Mountain Hawks are back in action Wednesday, as they welcome the Penn Quakers for a doubleheader to open the home schedule. First pitch for game one is set for 2:30 from Kaufman Field.
