Lexie Comeaux, Louisiana-Lafayette --- Comeaux had nearly as great of a week as our Player of the Week, Alex Mycek. One of the questions surrounding the Ragin Cajuns this season was whether or not they could replace the departed power hitters such as Elkins, Vincent, etc. Comeaux showed that there should not be any issue there. She ended the weekend batting .600, reaching base via a hit in three-fifths of her official at-bats. Her weekend line ended at .600/6/15, as she clubbed six home runs and scored nine runs. In addition to her sextet of roundtrippers, she added two doubles and four walks. 

Kelsey Waters, Stetson --- Waters' .750 batting average over the weekend at her team's hosted tournament may only have been outshined by her 1.583 slugging percentage over the weekend's quartet of games. Her weekend included two RBI triples, including a bases-clearing knock against South Dakota on Friday, and two home runs. By weekend's end, her RBI total reached nine. She currently rides a twelve-game hitting streak and scored six runs.

Susan Welborn, Texas Tech --- Welborn hit nearly for the cycle through the weekend, coming just a three-base hit short of the feat. She parked a trio of longballs over the fence and drove in five runs, while scoring seven. Her power spree drove some fear into the heart of opposing pitchers, as she earned three bases-on-balls and stole two bases, to boot.

Madison Shaw, Fordham --- The junior Rams infielder enjoyed herself a power display of her own in her team's 5-0 weekend showing. Shaw averaged 0.8 home runs per game, knocking a quartet of home runs over the fence. She ended the weekend with a .538 average over the same five games, having scored seven runs and driven in an insane seventeen.
