NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Senior third baseman Heather Johnson was named the BIG EAST Conference Player of the Week, as announced by the league on Monday. Johnson became the 14th Irish player in 22 seasons to hit at least two home runs in the same game when she did so on Feb. 27 against Virginia, as Notre Dame outscored the competition 40-3 at Virginia's Cavalier Invite (Feb. 26-27) including three sweeps to improve the Irish overall record to 8-4 this season.

Johnson posted a game-high three RBI in game two with the Cavaliers and drove in a team-best seven runs throughout the four-game invite. Johnson hit .583 with seven hits in 12 at bats and her 13 total bases helped her boast a slugging percentage of 1.083. She also stole a base and assisted on four putouts from third base. Johnson had three multi-hit and two multi-RBI efforts on the weekend, including at least one RBI in each game.

The Irish totaled 51 hits in the four games.

Notre Dame now looks ahead to a nine-game West Coast swing starting this Saturday with the UC Riverside Aten Construction Tournament.
