SMITHFIELD, R.I. – Bryant University softball freshman Gabrielle Ermish (Pottstown, Pa.) earned her first Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week award after her role in Bryant's sweep over Mount St. Mary's over the weekend.
The freshman went 2-1 on the week with a 1.53 ERA, and allowed 15 hits over 18.1 innings of work. She earned a pair complete game wins against the Mount, starting with a three-hit shutout in a 4-0 victory in Saturday's opener.
