Women’s Student-Athlete of the Week
Katie Martin - Softball - Sophomore - Bedford, NH
Katie Martin of the softball team has been tabbed as the WPI Female Student-Athlete of the Week for the week ending Sunday, May 5th. Martin earned the NEWMAC Tournament Most Outstanding Player award after pitching 13 innings and collecting three victories, including a shutout, as WPI claimed its second NEWMAC tournament title in four years Saturday on Rooftop Field. The sophomore started her historic day by tossing an inning of relief in a 3-2 walk-off victory over Wellesley before a six-hit, no-walk 2-0 shutout over MIT. Martin then faced MIT again and went the first five innings in the 5-4 in the winner-take-all contest.
