RAPTOR OF THE WEEK
Megan Farrell (Medford, NJ/Bishop Eustace Prep)
Senior Megan Farrell compiled a 2-1 record, one save and a 1.17 ERA in four games last week as the Rutgers-Camden softball team went 3-1 against New Jersey Athletic Conference opponents. She won both ends of a doubleheader against Richard Stockton College April 19, hurling a three-hitter in a 2-1 victory in the opener and winning the nightcap in relief, 5-3. She pitched 2.1 hitless innings without allowing an earned run in that game. In a split against William Paterson University April 21, she allowed only one earned run in a 4-2 loss in the opener, then came back with 2.2 innings of relief to save a 5-2 victory in the nightcap. For the week she pitched 18 innings, allowed only a .191 opponent batting average, raised her record to 8-5 and lowered her ERA to 2.22. She also had three putouts, 12 assists and only one error on the week. It is the second Raptor of the Week honor this season for Farrell, who also won the award March 19.
