ACC Announces Softball Players of the Week

UNC’s Delamora, FSU’s Warren, BC’s Frei honored

GREENSBORO, N.C. ( – North Carolina third baseman Berlynne Delamora and Florida State third baseman Jessica Warren have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Softball Players of the Week, while Boston College’s Allyson Frei earned Pitcher of the Week honors.

Delamora batted .750 while leading UNC to a perfect week, reaching base in all but one plate appearance. She slugged 2.250 with two game-changing home runs and six RBIs. The Tar Heel freshman reached base in all three plate appearances against No. 18 Notre Dame, launching a three-run home run in the third inning to give UNC a 4-2 lead and help the Tar Heels win two out of three against the nationally-ranked Irish. The Hacienda Heights, California, native displayed her power yet again on Wednesday against Campbell, drilling a two-run home run in the fifth inning to give the Tar Heels back the lead, 6-5. She then added some insurance with a sixth-inning RBI single. Additionally, she was flawless in the field with six assists and two putouts at third base.

Warren earned ACC Player of the Week recognition for the second time in a row and was dominant at the plate in a perfect 4-0 week for the Seminoles. The sophomore third baseman batted .562 (9-for-16) with nine RBI and seven runs scored, along with two doubles and three home runs. The Tampa, Florida, native posted multiple hits in three of the four games on the week, including a pair of three-hit performances in an ACC series sweep of Pitt on April 30-May 1. For the week, she posted a slugging percentage of 1.250 and had an on-base percentage of .611. She was perfect in 12 defensive chances and now leads the ACC with 61 runs batted in and 54 runs scored on the season.

Boston College’s Frei delivered another solid week on the mound, posting a 1.00 ERA in three appearances, with two wins, including one complete game and a shutout. She struck out 15 batters in her 14.0 innings pitched while allowing 10 hits and only two earned runs. Following her seven-inning effort in a 5-0 road win at Syracuse, the sophomore from Branchville, New Jersey, has now thrown 20.1 consecutive scoreless innings in ACC play, striking out 26 and allowing just six hits in that span.
