PSC Players Receive LEC Honors

May 12th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, NH – Two Plymouth State College softball players have been honored for their outstanding play this season, earning All-Conference and All-Region honors.

Junior Jen Arrajj (Lawrence, MA) earned Honorable Mention on the 1998 Little East Conference All-Star Team and was named Second Team All-Northeast Region by the
National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA), and sophomore utility player Sara Wormwood (Rutland, VT) was selected to NFCA’s Third Team All-Northeast Region.

Arrajj has received All-LEC honors all three years at Plymouth State, and All-Region accolades twice. She batted .358 in the lead-off spot this season and led the team in runs
(35), doubles (11), triples (5) and total bases (60). An outstanding defensive catcher, Arrajj had a .941 fielding percentage and made several outstanding plays at home blocking the
plate. She owns the school record for career doubles (32) with her senior season still to play, and is on track to break several others.

Wormwood turned in her second straight strong season in a Panther uniform. After batting .370 as a freshman with five doubles, two home runs and 25 RBI, she showed no
signs of a sophomore slump, batting .381 this spring with six doubles, two home runs and 27 RBI. She split her playing time between shortstop (16 games), first base (16 games) and
right field (3 games), leading the team in hits (43), at bats (113) and stolen bases (5).

The Panthers completed the regular season at 14-21-1 overall, and placed fifth in the LEC regular season with a 6-8 mark under coach Robin Payne. The Panthers were
knocked off in the first round of the LEC tournament, losing 5-0 at Keene State.
