Bald Eagle Area High School softball player Olivia Andrews is one of the Centre Daily Times' Athletes of the Week.

Andrews, a freshman left fielder, played a pivotal role as the Lady Eagles notched a pair of victories in the PIAA Class AA Tournament.

On Monday, Andrews belted a double and scored the tying run on a wild pitch in the bottom of the seventh inning against Seton LaSalle. An inning later, she singled to plate Marissa Tobias with the game-winning run in a 2-1 triumph.

On Thursday, Andrews singled and scored a key insurance run thanks to aggressive baserunning in a 4-1 triumph against District 10 champion Wilmington.

In both games, she did not make an error and made several fine plays in the outfield.

Bald Eagle Area will face Philipsburg-Osceola in the PIAA semifinals at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Penn State's Nittany Lion Softball Park.
