The Shenandoah University baseball team has swept the ODAC Player of the Week honors in selections announced Monday afternoon by the league office.

Senior catcher Daniel Freshley has been named as a league’s Player of the Week while junior pitcher Ryan Mossman earned Pitcher of the Week accolades.

Mossman, who also hit .400 on the week playing in the outfield, opened his week on the mound by tossing a two-hit shutout in a 9-0 ODAC win over Washington & Lee on St. Patrick’s Day.

He then pitched the final two innings of a 4-1 win over Hampden-Sydney Sunday to earn his first save of the season.

In 11.0 innings pitched, Mossman struck out six and allowed just three hits and three walks.

Freshley hit .455 for the week with 10 hits in 22 at-bats as SU swept both Penn St. – Altoona and Hampden-Sydney in doubleheader action, defeated W&L 9-0 and played Catholic to a 2-2 tie in 13 innings.

Freshley had at least one hit in all six games last week and highlighted his week with a 3 for 5, 2 RBI performance against Catholic on Wednesday.

He drove in runs in three of the five contests.

This is the first conference weekly honor for both men.

Mossman and Freshley are back in action tomorrow as the No. 14/25 Hornets travel to Dickinson for a 3:30 non-league contest.
