Watts, a first-year from South Boston, Va., picks up her second ODAC weekly award of the season in helping Lynchburg to a 3-1 week against strong competition. Watts slashed .571/.600/.929 in going 8-for-14 for the week. That began with a 3-for-4 showing in a 4-1 win over TCNJ. She tripled and scored twice against the Lions. Then came a showdown with nationally top-ranked Salisbury University. Following a 1-0 loss in game one, Watts twice game Lynchburg the lead in game two as part of a second 3-for-4 effort on the week. She plated a run with a RBI single in the fifth for a 2-1 lead, and then smacked the would-be game-winning solo shot to left-center in the seventh for a 3-2 victory. Watts capped her week with a 2-for-3 day in a 4-3 win over Swarthmore College. She drove in two more runs and scored once while stealing a base. For the season, Watts leads the ODAC in slugging (.775) and is third in batting (.425). She had accounted for 31 total bases (2nd in the ODAC) and hit three homers to go with 12 RBI and a .468 on-base percentage.
