Sciara's Big Week Lands Him as NECC Rookie of the Week

BENNINGTON, Vt. – Southern Vermont College freshman Sal Sciara was recently honored as New England Collegiate Conference Rookie of the Week.

Last week Sciara went 10-15 with five RBI’s and a homerun.  The homerun was an inside the park grand slam which helped lead the Mountaineers to a 6-3 win over Elms College.  Sciara has been impressive all season as he’s posted a .345 batting average with two homeruns through 35 games.

A week ago Mountaineer freshman Cody Labadia was also named NECC Rookie of the Week.  Sciara’s award marks the first time in program history that the Mountaineers have had back to back Rookie of the Week awards.

Southern Vermont is 9-26 so far this season and 5-10 in the NECC. The Mountaineers are in action next on Tuesday when they play host to Wesleyan.
