Williams Named Coca-Cola CIAA Softball Rookie of the Week


CHARLOTTE, NC (February 27, 2024) – It didn’t take long for Claflin freshman catcher JEniah Williams to earn a conference honor as she was named the Coca-Cola Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Softball Rookie of the Week after a terrific week of play for the Lady Panthers.

She took home the honors after a strong week of play at Southern Wesleyan and at USC Aiken. Williams recorded a hit in each game she played in and she scored a run. For the week, she went four-for-12.

Williams and the Lady Panthers will return to action, Friday, when the team heads to Augusta, Georgia to take on the Paine Lions.
