Desert Vista graduate and Newbury College freshman Naomi Ricciotti was named the New England Collegiate Conference Rookie of the Week.

Ricciotti hit .286 (8-for-28) with an NECC leading two triples and five RBIs. In the final game in southwestern Florida against non-conference, regional opponent Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, the Arizona native capped off a 3-1 comeback victory, driving a two-run triple the opposite way into the right-center field gap in the bottom of a three-run sixth inning.
