Freshman Haley Hutton earns MW Player of the Week honors after leading the Rams to a 4-0 record last weekend
April 8, 2014
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado State freshman Haley Hutton has been named the Mountain West Softball Player of the Week. Hutton helped the Rams to four non-conference victories on the week, extending the team’s winning streak to seven games.
The second baseman reached base 14 times in 15 plate appearances, including eight hits and six walks. After grounding out in her first at-bat, she reached base safely the next 14. Additionally, Hutton scored a team-high seven runs, drove in two, hit her second career home run and stole a base. Defensively, she had six putouts and seven assists.
Against Northern Colorado, Hutton led off the bottom of the seventh inning with a single up the middle. She came around to score, leading to a two-run rally to tie the game and send the game into extra innings. The Rams won in the next frame, 6-5.
Over the weekend, CSU swept UTEP in a three-game set at Ram Field. Hutton led off each game of the series with a walk, allowing the Rams to score nine first-inning runs.
The player-of-the-week award is the Rams’ second of the season. In February, sophomore pitcher Holly Reinke earned Mountain West Pitcher of the Week honors after helping CSU to a 4-1 start to the season.
The Rams have won seven consecutive games, and hold a 22-9 record on the season. CSU didn’t reach the 22-win plateau last year until the final two weeks of the season. CSU will travel to Las Vegas, Nev., this weekend, to face the Rebels in a three-game conference series.
