NDSCS sophomore Maddy Sweep was named the NJCAA Division III Player of the Week for her performance last week in Rochester Feb. 17-23.
Sweep, a short stop from Casselton, N.D., guided the Wildcats to a 3-0 record, going 8-for-13 from the plate. Her eight hits included a home run. She drove in three runs and scored nine. Sweep also stole seven bases, including a season-high four against Ellsworth CC.
For the season she’s batting .571 with a .591 on-base percentage and 1.048 slugging percentage. In six games she’s totaled 12 hits and 12 runs with five RBI and nine stolen bases.
NDSCS is a perfect 6-0 on the season. The Cats are idle until a six-game southern road trip on March 16-18 where they’ll see Metropolitan CC, Kansas City Kansas CC and Southwestern CC.
