PERFORMANCES OF THE WEEK
  • Ali Aguilar, Washington - The breakout Huskies star helped her team right the ship after an upset loss on Saturday to take the series on Sunday, and she did so in stylish fashion - Aguilar hit .400 on the day with a pair of home runs, giving her twenty roundtrippers on the season. She was responsible for four of her team's seven runs. She got back in her groove after a three-strikeout performance a day earlier.
  • Jailyn Ford, James Madison - The star dual-threat for Mickey Dean's Dukes let her bat do most of the talking for her this weekend, hitting .857 and only recording one out any time she stepped to the plate. She cranked a pair of home runs and earned three walks over the course of the weekend. She scored three runs and stole a trio of bases, to boot - and, just for good measure, turned in a five-hit, 10-strikeout performance in a six-inning appearance in the circle on Sunday.
  • Nicole Schroeder, Arkansas - One of the few bright spots for the cellar-dwelling Hogs this season, Schroeder looks like an all-conference player at the plate. She's currently riding a nine-game hitting streak and a thirteen-game on-base streak. Over the course of the latter, the California-native junior has hit .467. She parked a grand slam during Sunday's contest vs. Ole Miss, only her team's second grand slam of the season.
  • Kendra Lynch, North Carolina - In Game 1 of a doubleheader versus nationally-ranked #24 (RPI) Notre Dame, Lynch not only stifled the Irish offense, she contributed a good bit of offense of her own. In her first at-bat of the game, in the bottom of the first inning, Lynch cranked a three-run home run to give her team the early lead. She later added a fourth RBI and held the Fighting Irish offense to just as many runs, sending down the final ten batters of the game to seal the deal. The victory was Lynch's twenty-first of the season and she maintained her second-on-the-team status in both batting average and home runs.
