ACC Announces Softball Players of the Week

BC’s Dreswick, Florida State’s King and Warren honored

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Florida State third baseman Jessica Warren has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Softball Player of the Week, while Boston College’s Jessica Dreswick and FSU’s Meghan King were named Co-Pitchers of the Week.

The honors are the first of the season for Warren and Dreswick, while King was named ACC Pitcher of the Week for the second time this year.

Warren carried the Seminole offense to a 4-1 week, including a road win at No. 3 Auburn on April 20. For the week, Warren batted .455 with a .727 slugging percentage and was on base at a .562 clip. She drove in eight RBIs for the week and scored three of her own. The Tampa, Florida, native had a base hit in four of the five games on the week, including a 1-for-1 performance with a home run, sacrifice fly and two RBIs at No. 3 Auburn. On Sunday, she drove in five runs and batted 2-for-2 from the plate as the Noles completed a three-game sweep of Virginia Tech.

Dreswick became just the second pitcher in Boston College history to throw a no-hitter in the Eagles’ 4-0 victory over NC State on Saturday. The Flemington, New Jersey, native’s effort came one month after she came within an out of recording a no-hitter against Georgia Tech. The sophomore was lights out, striking out six and not allowing a runner to advance past first base until the bottom of the seventh inning. Right-handed hitters were 0-of-14 against her and the Wolfpack was a collective 0-for-12 against her with runners on base.

King was a perfect 2-0 in the circle for Florida State, including a complete-game victory in the road win at No. 3 Auburn. The redshirt freshman pitcher limited the NCAA’s best offense to just three runs in the non-conference victory, as the Tigers entered the game averaging more than nine runs per game. King battled out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth, striking out Jade Rhodes, the then-reigning SEC Player of the Week, to end the inning. The Parkland, Florida, native added another complete-game win on April 23 in a 3-1 victory over Virginia Tech. King allowed only faced five base runners for the entire game, scattering three hits and allowing just one run.
