Kaitlyn Schiffhauer of the softball team is this week's COOP Student Athlete of the Week. During the team's doubleheader sweep, the senior hit .500 with a 1.000 slugging percentage, five RBIs, two runs, a double, triple and a walk. In the fifth inning of the second contest against Cornell, the lefty batter drilled the pitch to the left-center field gap as she cleared the bases for a three-RBI triple to give the Crimson the one-run lead and momentum over the Big Red. The team would go on to win the contest, 8-4, to clinch the Ivy League title and advance to its fourth-straight playoff appearance.
Softball will host the Ivy League Championship Series this weekend against Columbia, beginning on Friday at 1:30 p.m.
