CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--Rachel Brown of the Harvard softball team is the Harvard COOP Athlete of the Week for April 23. The senior allowed one earned run and struck out 25 batters in 21 innings of work, helping the Crimson clinch its third straight Ivy League North Division title.

After surrendering a first-inning run Friday in the opener of Harvard's weekend series against the Brown Bears, she did not allow a hit over the final nine innings of a 2-1, extra-inning win. She followed that effort with a two-hit shutout of the Bears Saturday. Brown also struck out six Boston University Terriers in four innings of midweek work and posted an earned-run average of 0.33 for the week.
