PERFORMANCES OF THE WEEK:
  • James Madison's Offense - In his squad's third-straight undefeated weekend of games, Mickey Dean's offense showed out yet again. Six different players parked at least one round-tripper over the fence, including three from Taylor Newton and a pair from Niki Prince. Thirteen of the Dukes’ nineteen rostered players scored at least one run in the offensive showing and eleven players added at least one tally in the RBI column.
  • Haley Hutton, Colorado State - The Rams' junior shortstop hit .727 on the weekend, reaching base eight times in eleven official at-bats. She was walked four times. Among those eight base knocks were *four* triples and an inside-the-park home run; she crossed the plate and scored six times, en route to leading her team to a 3-1 record at week's end.
  • Katiyana Mauga, Arizona - The Wildcats' standout all-American slugger is no stranger to impressive statistics, and this weekend was no exception. An 8-for-15 weekend was good enough for a .533 batting average. Exactly 1/2 of those eight hits went over the fence and another went for extra bases. Opposing pitchers had no shame in pitching around her powerful bat, either, as she earned a base on balls seven times, including three times in her squad’s only weekend loss, to James Madison on Sunday.
