NOTRE DAME, Ind. -
Senior outfielder Brianna Jorgensborg was named the BIG EAST Softball Player of the Week, as announced by the league on Monday. Jorgensborg's bat was a big reason No. 22 Notre Dame was able to win five conference games last week, including a three-game home sweep of St. John's.
Joining Alexa Maldonado and Heather Johnson, Jorgensborg is the third Irish player to earn the honor this season.
Jorgensborg batted .600 on the week with a mighty 1.800 slugging pct. She went 6-for-10 at the dish as each of her hits were good for extra bases (three doubles, three home runs).
Two of her home runs came during a game-one win over St. John's.
All said and done, Jorgensborg scored eight times with nine RBI, two stolen bases, one sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly.
Featured on the league's Honor Roll was freshman pitcher Laura Winter, who prevailed with her first career complete-game no-hitter at USF. Not only did Winter strike out nine batters at USF, but she recorded another win over St. John's with a nine-strikeout effort without walking a batter.
