Chestnut Hill, Mass. -
Boston College freshman pitcher Kimberly Ryan earned BIG EAST Co-Rookie of the Week honors for the week ending Apr. 10 following a 4-1 week.
Ryan, who shared the award with Courtney Fitzgerald of St. John's, pitched her first career shutout in a one-hit, 8-0 win over Holy Cross on Apr. 5, then followed that with a three-hitter against Maine on Apr. 6. In her BIG EAST debut, Ryan struck out 10 in a one-hit win at St. John's on Apr. 8. Against Seton Hall on Apr. 10, Ryan fanned a career-best 15 batters and allowed just three hits in a 2-1 win.
