Dartmouth University freshman softball player Katie McEachern, who starred last year as Point Loma High School’s shortstop, is making an impact in the Ivy League.

McEachern was named both co-player of the week and rookie of the week on March 26, based on her performance on the diamond for the Big Green.

After earning a starting position for Dartmouth, McEachern hit .522 in seven games last week, including recording the Big Green’s first-ever cycle. Against Iowa State, she singled in the first, homered in the third, doubled in the fifth and tripled in the seventh to go 4-for-4 with three runs scored and three runs batted in. For the week, McEachern was 12-for-23, hitting safely in all seven games with a .826 slugging percentage.

The cycle is considered perhaps the most difficult feat in baseball and softball, because of the extreme odds against getting the required single, double, triple and home run in the same game.
