Riverdale, NY – Junior Briana Matazinsky (Valley Falls, NY / Tamarac) of the softball team and senior Joey Rocchietti (Green Brook, NJ / Watchung Hills) have been selected as the ATAX Manhattan College Student-Athletes of the Week. They were chosen based on their performances from March 27-April 2.
Matzinsky, who was also named MAAC Pitcher of the Week, went 3-0 with a 0.39 ERA in three pitching appearances. She started the Jaspers’ string of four consecutive shutouts by tossing six scoreless innings in a 9-0 win at Sacred Heart on Wednesday. Matazinsky then threw a one-hit shutout against Rider on Sunday. The only hit she allowed was an infield single in the first inning, and she faced just three batters over the minimum in the 8-0 triumph. On Monday against Monmouth, Matazinsky gave up one run on six hits over six innings in a 9-1 Manhattan victory. She struck out 15 over 18 innings in the three games. Matazinsky also went 5-for-15 at the plate, scoring five runs and driving in four.
Rocchietti played a key role in Manhattan's 5-4 series-finale win over Siena. The hard-throwing righty struck out a career-high 10 while yielding just two runs on four hits and two walks in seven innings. On the year, the Garden State native has 32 strikeouts and a team-low 3.96 ERA over 36.1 innings of action.
