Two former York County softball players now competing for Lancaster Bible College swept the weekly North Eastern Athletic Conference softball awards for this past week's games.

Dallastown grad Kelsey Collins pitches for Lancaster Bible College.

Junior pitcher Kelsey Collins, who played for Dallastown, was named the NEAC Pitcher of the Week, while sophomore third baseman and pitcher Julia D'Arrigo, who is a Kennard-Dale grad, earned NEAC Player of the Week.

Collins earned her honor by tossing her second career no-hitter and the third in program history during the Chargers' 21-0 victory over Rosemont last Friday. In the game, which lasted just five innings, she struck out five and walked only two. She came back the next day and pitched two innings, allowing just one hit, during Lancaster Bible's 35-1 win over Cairn.

On the season, she leads the conference with 25 strikeouts and four complete games.

D'Arrigo was 9 for 17 at the plate in the four games last week, hitting three home runs and two doubles, driving in 12 runs and scoring 12 runs. She leads the NEAC with five home runs, 19 RBIs, 39 total bases and 19 runs scored, while ranking second in the conference with a .907 slugging percentage. D'Arrigo also earned two wins in the circle, picking up victories in the second game against Rosemont and against Cairn.

The Chargers went 4-0 on the week and are now 6-6 on the year.
