North Greenville's Rivers and Limestone's Weber Named Conference Carolinas Softball Players of the Week

HIGH POINT, N.C. – North Greenville University's Celsea Rivers was named the Conference Carolinas Softball Player of the Week, while Limestone College's Josie Weber was tabbed the Conference Carolinas Softball Pitcher of the Week for games played Apr. 16-22, the Conference announced today.

A senior from Lexington, S.C., Rivers led NGU to a 5-1 record, including 4-0 in Conference Carolinas play, last week after posting a .500 average with eight hits and six RBI. Five of her eight hits were of the extra-base variety, as she belted three homers and two doubles to go with her nine runs scored.

Rivers currently has a .278 batting average with 30 hits and 16 RBI. This is North Greenville's seventh POTW honor of the season.

Weber, a senior from Stanley, N.C., pitched four innings and picked up a 15-0 victory for the Saints against Converse in her lone outing last week. She struck out four, scattered four hits and issued one walk on her way to locking up a regular season title for Limestone.

Weber currently ranks fourth in Conference Carolinas in ERA (1.50), while ranking seventh in wins (11) and ninth in strikeouts (71). This marks Limestone's eighth POTW honor of the season.
