Awards VESTAL, N.Y. — Sophomore first baseman Jamie Boyer (Lancaster, Pa./ Manheim Township) and senior pitcher Margaret Yerdon (Lacona, N.Y./ Sandy Creek) have each received honors from the America East Conference for the week of April 3-7. Boyer was named the baseball Player of the Week while Yerdon was named the softball Pitcher of the Week. This marks the first time Binghamton has ever received either a baseball or softball weekly honor from the America East Conference.

Boyer led Binghamton to a 4-1 record last week by going 10-for-19 at the plate with five RBI. He led the Bearcats to a 3-1 record in their four-game series at Hartford this past weekend by going 7-for-14 with three runs, three doubles and three RBI. Earlier in the week, Boyer went 3-for-6 with a pair of RBI as Binghamton picked up a 9-6 road win at Bucknell. After batting just .219 heading into the week, Boyer’s average shot up 70 points to .289. Heading into next weekend’s series at Stony Brook, Binghamton is in sole possession of first place in the America East Conference with its 3-1 record.

Yerdon, meanwhile, tossed a four-hit shutout at Albany on Saturday, as Binghamton blanked the Great Danes 10-0. It marked the third time this season that she has thrown a complete game shutout. With the win, Yerdon evened her record to 4-4. Including the win at Albany, she has been Binghamton’s top pitcher this season with a 2.03 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 71.0 innings of work.
