OXFORD, Ohio – For their performances last week golf junior Scott Cahill and softball sophomore designated player/pitcher Jenna Modic are Miami’s Athletes of the Week connected by Frontier Communications for the week of April 28-May 4.
Cahill completed a strong junior season with a 10th place finish at the MAC Championship. It is the second time in his collegiate career he had a top-10 placing. Cahill shot rounds of 75-71-74-74 to finish with a score of six-over par 294.
This is the second time this season and in his career that Cahill has been named Miami’s Male Athlete of the Week. He previously earned the honor for the week of March 24-30.
Modic got the job done in both the circle and at the plate in leading the softball team to a 4-1 week and a spot in the MAC Tournament. She had a hit in every game last week as she went 5-for-14 with two doubles, one home run and two RBI. She led Miami with a .714 slugging percentage. Opposing teams recognized her as a threat this week as she drew six walks, at least one in every game. She finished with an on-base percentage of .550 for the week. In the circle, Modic was a shutdown reliever coming into the game three times and not allowing a single run. In two of her outings, she did not allow a single hit and earned the save both times. She pitched three innings of no-hit ball to earn the save against Butler on Tuesday. Modic followed with 3.2 innings of scoreless pitching against EMU on Friday. She finished it off with a three inning save against Central Michigan on Saturday. Modic struck out seven in 9.2 innings pitched and had a WHIP of 0.52 for the week.
