Eigenmann Earns NEC Weekly Honor

Eigenmann Earns NEC Weekly Honor

Central Connecticut softball freshman Rian Eigenmann was announced as the Northeast Conference Player of the Week and Co-Rookie of the Week on Tuesday afternoon by the league's front office. The Millville, NJ native led the Blue Devils batting .563 with four multi-hit games, two home runs, nine RBIs, and six runs scored. Central has won three of its last four games including a sweep over Rider on Sunday.


During a double-header against Quinnipiac, the starting catcher went 6-for-7 including one double, one home run, and two RBIs earning a split against the Bobcats. Eigenmann reached base in all three of her at bats in game one and stole two bases in Central's 3-0 victory over Quinnipiac.

Over the weekend, Eigenmann played a pivotal role in CCSU's sweep against Rider. In game one, she went 3-of-4 with a double and a total of four RBIs. She crossed home plate three times leading the Blue Devils to win 12-11. In game two, she opened the game with a home run going 3-of-5 from the plate posting three RBIs and scoring twice.

Entering the bottom of the fifth trailing 7-5, Central scored four runs in the fifth inning and nine in the sixth, including a walk off grand slam by sophomore Sydney Bolan to end the game early 18-7. Bolan made the NEC Prime Performers List for the second week this season.

Central softball is back in action on Wednesday, March 27 for a double-header at Yale starting at 2 and 4 p.m.
