Boston, Mass. -- Freshman shortstop Maddie Daigneau (New River, Ariz./Boulder Creek) earned her second straight America East Rookie of the Week honor, the conference announced Tuesday morning. 

In five games this past weekend, Daigneau batted .438 (7-for-16), with two doubles, her first three career RBI, a stolen base and four walks. The Arizona native had a .550 on-base percentage and .562 slugging percentage as well. 

Daigneau is batting a team-best .455 and has at least one hit in all ten games of her career. She also leads the team in almost all offensive categories and has played solid defense at short.

The Retrievers open up their home schedule on Friday by hosting Morgan State for doubleheader beginning at noon to start the UMBC First Pitch Kickoff Classic.
