Batting leadoff, Marciano (Pepperell, Mass.) set the tone for a WNE week that saw it win all five games against Commonwealth Coast Conference competition. He batted .433 (13-for-30) with three doubles, 13 runs batted in, eight stolen bases and seven runs scored in eight games overall to earn CCC Player of the Week accolades. Marciano hit safely in all eight games and picked up four multi-hit games along the way. In CCC competition, Marciano tallied two hits, one RBI, three runs scored, and three stolen bases in a 10-2 victory at Salve Regina, collected two hits, one RBI, a run scored, and two steals in a doubleheader sweep of Curry, and added five hits, six RBI, and a stolen base in a pair of wins over Wentworth. Marciano added four hits, five RBI, and two steals in non-conference games against Framingham State, Keene State and Brandeis.
