INDIANA, Pa. – Women's tennis player Jarka Petercakova (Bratislava, Slovakia/Sport Gymnasium) and softball outfielder Kassie Kesneck have been named the IUP Athletes of the Week, which were announced by the IUP Sports Information Office on Monday morning.
Kesneck, a Chartiers-Houston graduate, hit .500 with a .722 slugging percentage as she helped IUP softball to a 5-1 record in three PSAC Central doubleheaders last week.
The freshman went 9-for-18 at the plate with two doubles and a triple, driving in five runs while scoring five of her own. A speedy left fielder, Kesneck also stole four bases.
She had a hit in all six games last week, including a 5 for 7 day against Pitt-Johnstown, which included three extra-base hits and three RBI.
It's Kesneck's first career IUP weekly honor.
