Eastern’s PAC Players of the Week

First-year attack Grace Griffith earned her first PAC Player of the Week honor with an impressive 11 goals and 7 assists, leading Eastern to a 3-0 PAC week.

In a 16-6 victory over Alvernia, Griffith tallied two goals and three assists. Two days later, she put up similar numbers with three goals and two assists as the Eagles beat Centenary College 18-9.

However, Griffith tallied most of her points in a 16-4 rout of Misericordia, when she unleashed for a game-high six goals and two assists.

Heading into the playoffs, Griffith currently leads the team with 47 goals and 21 assists, after a 5-goal performance in the Eagles’ season finale.

With a perfect 4-0 week in the PAC, junior pitcher Raychel Weis became Eastern’s first PAC pitcher of the week. Weis won all four of her starts, helping Eastern complete a solid 7-1 PAC week.

In a lopsided 26-0 victory over Rosemont, Weis struck-out six and gave up one hit. The next day, she pitched another complete game with 4 strikeouts, as the Eagles won 6-2.

Weis’ finest performance came in Eastern’s crucial 2-0 victory over Gwynedd-Mercy. She allowed two hits and struck out 7 batters in the shutout. Weis’ fourth win of the week gave Eastern a return trip to the PAC playoffs. She gave up a pair of runs while striking out six for the 6-2 win.

Weis recently earned her tenth win of the year, becoming only the second pitcher in Eastern history to do so. She has faced more than 440 batters this season, with an impressive 2.44 ERA.
