Salem State’s Katelynn Fanning of East Boston is a second-year player who has blossomed into a star, earning MVP honors as a sophomore. She earned All-MASCAC first team honors while pitching the Lady Vikings to a school-best 33-8-1 record.
Salem State, which tied for the MASCAC conference regular season, won the tournament championship and earned the school’s first NCAA Division III tournament bid. Fanning was named MVP of the MASCAC tournament after she notched four victories, including a complete-game two-hitter with four strikeouts in a 5-1 triumph over Westfield State in the championship round. She then threw 3 2/3 innings of relief to earn the win in a 6-2 title game victory over the Owls.
As the Lady Vikings number one starter, she led the league in wins, strikeouts, and innings pitched. A two-time MASCAC player of the week this sophomore has emerged to become one of the most dominating pitchers at Salem State during her short tenure.
