Christendom roundup: Barbale named national player of week

Daily Staff Report - sports@nvdaily.com

FRONT ROYAL -- Christendom College women's basketball player Mary Barbale was named as the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) Division II Basketball Player of the Week on Wednesday.

Barbale, a junior, became the first female player in Christendom College history to score 40 points in a single game. During the Feb. 17 victory over Central Penn College, Barbale shot 65 percent from the floor, which also included shooting 73 percent from behind the 3-point arc. Adding to her stat line, she grabbed 12 rebounds to finish the game with a double-double.

"It's an honor to receive this recognition," Barbale stated in a school news release. "I would like to thank coach [Mike] Brown and my teammates for making it a great season."

This is the second time Barbale has been awarded player of the week in the national conference.
