The longball turned out to be the big blow, a three-run shot in a six-run second inning against New Mexico State on Sunday, leading to an 8-1 win.
 
It was the third career weekly honor for the Winfield, Ill. native, who also claimed BIG EAST Pitcher of the Week on Feb. 17 and her first BIG EAST Player of the Week award last season.
