Brittany Dziecielowski Brittany Dziecielowski may get cheated in the box scores, due to the statistical software not being able to accommodate every letter in her long name, but she doesn’t get cheated in the batter’s box.

The freshman catcher on the Muhlenberg softball team was named player of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Dzieciolowski, whose name is abbreviated to “B. Dziecielowski” or “Dziecielowsk” in the box scores, came up with one big hit after another as the Mules went 4-0 to clinch the top seed in the CC playoffs. She doubled in the go-ahead runs in both ends of the Dickinson doubleheader, broke a 0-0 tie with a sixth-inning single in the first game vs. Ursinus and drove in the game-tying and game-ending runs in an 11-3 win in the nightcap.

Dzieciolowski batted .538 with a .692 slugging percentage and six RBI in the four games.

For the season, Dziecielowski is second on the team and 11th in the CC with a .382 average. She also ranked in the top 15 in the league in slugging percentage (.513) and RBI (20). In CC games, Dziecielowski is tied for the team lead with a .390 average and is fourth in the CC with 12 RBI.

Muhlenberg (24-7-1, 12-2) has a three-game lead over second-place Washington with two games to play and will host the CC playoffs for the first time on May 4 and 5. The Mules have six games remaining in the regular season (beginning with tomorrow’s home doubleheader against Misericordia) and have a good shot at breaking the school record for wins in a season (26, set in 1991).
