MANSFIELD, Mass. – Southern New Hampshire University catcher Dakota Mulcay (Goffstown/Cushing Academy) was chosen as the Northeast-10 Player of the Week, and starting pitcher Wesley Tobin (Portsmouth/Portsmouth Christian Academy) landed NE-10 Pitcher of the Week honors the league office announced Monday afternoon.
The Penmen, ranked 20th in the latest National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Division II Poll, went 4-0 last week as they began the season by outscoring Stonehill College 28-7 in a four-game sweep.
Mulcay got off to a blistering start to the year, slashing .600/.647/1.600/2.247, as he went 6 for 10 with three home runs, a double, eight RBIs, six runs scored and five walks. Mulcay had at least two hits, a home run and two RBIs in each of the first three games of the year, going 6 for 7 with the four extra-base hits during that stretch.
Tobin was dominant in his first start of the season, hurling a two-hit, complete-game shutout, while striking out 11 and not walking a batter, in an 8-0, seven-inning victory at Stonehill on Saturday. Tobin retired the first eight batters he faced, then allowed back-to-back hits in the fourth inning, before finishing by setting down the final 12 he faced.
