Aston, PA (April 20, 2009) – Senior pitcher Allison Holland (James Buchanan HS/Mercerberg, PA) was named the Colonial States Athlete Conference (CSAC) Softball pitcher of the Week for the week ending April 19.

In the opener, Holland threw all five innings for Cedar Crest, striking out 11 batters and walking just one. She also went 4-for-5 at the plate, scoring three runs and posting two RBI. Holland was just a homerun short of hitting for the cycle in the victory.
