SPRINGFIELD, MASS. — Bethlehem Central High School graduate McKenzie Pezze gave the Western New England University softball team a power boost over the last week.
The senior third baseman belted five home runs over a two-week stretch — her first five career collegiate homers — to help the Golden Bears win their second conference championship in a row. Two of her homers came during a doubleheader against Amherst College Wednesday, April 27.
Pezze was named Western New England’s female student-athlete of the week for her efforts. She was also named a third team all-conference player.
