Melissa Nelson: Softball

Melissa Nelson
Melissa Nelson has been selected as the Springfield College Female Maroon Club Athlete of the Week after leading the softball team to three conference wins this week. The Pride swept Smith and beat MIT, 9-0.

In six games this week, the Milford, Conn. native hit .500, tallying 11 hits, including two doubles and a triple. The Sport Management major drove in nine runs and scored three times.

In the 4-3 win over Smith last week, Nelson went 3-for-3 from the plate, driving in three runs to pace the Pride.

Springfield will hit the road on Tuesday for a doubleheader at Keene State, before returning home for a pair of games against Emerson on Wednesday, and doubleheaders against Clark on Friday and Babson on Saturday.
