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.
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.
