GlobeSouth: Players of the Week, Top 10 baseball and softball teams

High 5

Sarah Dawson , Bridgewater-Raynham: The junior’s fifth no-hitter of the season could not have come at a better time for the Trojans; she sent back 21 of the 22 hitters she faced on strikeouts in a 2-0 win over North Attleborough in the Division 1 South final. It was B-R’s second sectional title in three years.

Connor DiVencenzo , Westwood: After driving home the only run in a 1-0 Division 2 South semifinal win over Duxbury, the senior took advantage of a 3-2 pitch in last Saturday’s South final against Dartmouth, plating the Wolverines’ first run of the game in the fifth inning. He then came around to score what would be the winning run in a 2-1 victory.


Ryan Earle , Archbishop Williams: Leading the Bishops in home runs, stolen bases, and OPS, the senior earned Conference Central League co-MVP honors after helping ABW reach the Division 4 South semifinals.

John Galvin , Norwood: The senior pitcher carried the Mustangs to their first state final game since 1943, retiring the final 17 batters and going 4 for 4 from the plate in a 2-1 state semifinal win over Andover Tuesday.

Joe Rydzewski , Norwood: In the Division 1 South final, the captain made a defensive play at first base to save at least a run and later came in to pitch, allowing just one of the last 10 batters he faced to get on base while preserving a 4-3 win over New Bedford last Saturday.
