CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Upon return from her team’s annual spring break trip to California, senior third baseman Kasey Lange received Ivy League Co-Player of the Week honors, the league announced Tuesday. It is the sixth time in Lange’s career she has earned the honor, sharing the nod with Columbia’s Kayla Shimoda.

With 13 hits and a .433 batting average in nine games last week, Lange was the hottest hitter on the Harvard roster, helping the Crimson turn in a 4-5 record. She started all nine games at third base and scored a team-leading eight runs to go along with her 21 total bases. Lange slugged .700 for the week and ripped two home runs in the same game; an 8-2 win over Cal State Bakersfield. She had four multi-hit games on the week and did not commit and error in 28 total chances in the field.

Lange continues to lead the Crimson with a .347 batting average, 18 RBI, three home runs and six doubles. She also leads all Ivy players in RBI and ranks within the top 10 in the league in batting average and home runs.

Lange and the Crimson open Ivy League play this weekend against Princeton and Cornell.
