AUSTINTOWN – The Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) announced its weekly honor roll for the week ending, March 18, 2013, and senior Brooke Byrne was included on the list as the co-Hitter of the Week.

Byrne (Wilmington, OH/Wilmington) was outstanding this past week in leading the Lady Quakers to a 4-0 week. The senior shortstop went 9-of-17 (.529) with four runs scored, two doubles, two home runs and 11 RBI as WC improved to 12-2 on the season.

She shared the award with Mount Union’s Kristen Gromes. It's the second straight week a Wilmington softball player earned the award as junior pitcher Danielle Monnier (Houston, OH/Houston) earned Pitcher of the Week last week.

Byrne leads the team in hits (20), triples (1) and RBI (15), and is second in runs (10), doubles (3) and homers (2).

Wilmington opens OAC action 1 p.m. Saturday when the Lady Quakers host Marietta.
