Senior Audrey Grinnell has also provided clutch hitting for the Huskies this year. Grinnell leads the team in RBI's with an impressive 22 to go along with six home runs.
Rhode Island is also currently on a three game losing streak after losing to Harvard and losing both games of a double header with Fordham.
Sophomore Taylor Archer and senior Jocelyn Mattison lead the Rams offensively. Archer leads the team in hits with 21 as well as batting average with a .288 clip. Mattison and Archer are tied for the team lead in RBI's with 12 a piece on the season. Mattison however, also leads the team in strikeouts with 23 on the season.
