  • Chloe Rathburn, Missouri - The former South Alabama transfer has put up stellar numbers since arriving in Columbia this season; she began this weekend on a particularly high note, accomplishing a feat that few can add to their resumes; in the midst of a ten-run inning in an eventual run-rule victory, Rathburn hit two home runs in the same inning, including a grand slam the second time around. She ended the weekend hitting .353 with four home runs, fourteen RBI, and a triple.
  • Nicole Zapotoczny, Pacific - Though she hit 'just' .308 in her team's five games this weekend, Zapotoczny enjoyed a power trip during the Tigers' hosted Libby Matson Tournament. The senior infielder ended the weekend with three home runs, five RBI, and three walks and helped elevate her draft stock simultaneously.
  • Maddy Grimm, Kent State - En route to the Golden Flashes' program home run title, Grimm decided to add some style points to her new record. After starting off the weekend with a perfect 3-3 performance with two home runs and 6 RBI, she ended the weekend with a .400 batting clip, four home runs, and eight RBI. She came just a single short of the unconventional cycle, collecting all of the extra base hits necessary for such a feat.
