Mount Mercy Academy softball players Laura Gregory (Buffalo) and Allison Rogowski (West Seneca) have earned additional honors for their play on the diamond this season. The two juniors received recognition from area coaches.
Gregory was named to the Buffalo News All Western New York Softball team. Gregory, a pitcher and infielder, was previously named as the Monsignor Martin League pitcher of the year. She posted a 3-0 record on the mound, pitching 18 2/3 innings, giving up two earned runs and 13 hits while striking out 28 batters. She had an earned run average of.75. She was also one of the team’s top hitters, with 15 hits, including two doubles, a triple and a home run. She drove in nine runs and had a .652 batting average. She was also a First Team All-Catholic choice and a Small School Honorable Mention All-Western New York selection last year. Additionally, Gregory was named to the Fourth Team for Class B in all of New York State.
Rogowski was selected Small School Honorable Mention All Western New York. Rogowski, also a pitcher and infielder, was a First Team All-Catholic for the second straight year. She posted a 4-1 record while splitting the pitching duties with Gregory. She gave up 26 hits and struck out 20. She also was a top batter, cracking 13 hits, including two doubles and two home runs. She drove in 15 runs and had a .619 batting average. Last year she was voted to the Small School All Western New York team.
It is an impressive accomplishment for these two juniors to be selected out of all the softball players in Western New York schools.
