Forest, Va. -- For the second-straight week, the Old Dominion Athletic Conference bestowed its softball player of the week honor on University of Lynchburg senior Mackenzie Chitwood (Ferrum, Va.), the league office announced Monday.

The Lynchburg first baseman led the Hornets to a 4-2 week with a 9-for-19 (.474) effort at the plate. She homered three times in the week and drove in a team-high nine runs.

Lynchburg swept No. 17 Salisbury and Mary Washington but dropped a pair to No. 7 Christopher Newport between the two.

Chitwood is currently tied for the ODAC lead in RBI this season with 22. She ranks in the top 15 nationally in home runs (5) and RBI and is hitting a scalding .538 with runners on base.

The Hornets (15-3) are currently ranked No. 13 in Division III by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
