NOTRE DAME, Ind. - For the second week in a row, a Notre Dame softball player has staked the league's top weekly honor as senior first baseman Christine Lux was named the BIG EAST Player of the Week on Monday. Lux set a pair of school records this past weekend at the UC Riverside Aten Construction Tournament while leading the Irish to three wins to improve to 11-4 overall this season.

Not only did Lux become Notre Dame's career home run leader with two bombs at the tournament, she had five hits in three games to extend the team's winning streak to 10 games (including an upset of No. 14 Ohio State). Lux hit .556 with two home runs and a double with five RBI for a 1.333 slugging pct. Furthermore, Lux's efforts helped the Irish continue a seven-game jaunt with 10+ hits.

The co-captain's record-breaking 36th home run came against East Tennessee State (March 6), the same game in which she became Notre Dame's all-time leader in putouts (she had an astounding 18 putouts at first base). She added another home run against UC Riverside (March 7).

Lux had two multi-RBI and multi-hit efforts with at least one run, hit and an RBI in each game played.

Heather Johnson was named BIG EAST Player of the Week on March 1, and junior Jody Valdivia was recognized as the BIG EAST Pitcher of the Week on Feb. 22.

Notre Dame plays at CS Northridge (March 10) before heading to the Long Beach Invitational (March 12-14). Live stats for each game will be available at UND.com.
