Colorado State junior catcher Kerry Farrell has been named Mountain West Conference Softball Player of the Week. The honor marks CSU's fourth player of the week award of the season and Farrell's first of her career.
Farrell, an Omaha, Neb., native, helped the Rams to three conference victories last weekend, batting .538 (7-for-13) from the plate and hitting safely in three of four games. In game one of the CSU doubleheader against Utah, she went 4-for-4 with two home runs, a double, four RBI and two runs scored in a 6-2 win. Farrell followed with another home run, a double, three RBI and a run scored as the Rams completed the sweep over the Utes with a 7-5 game two victory. In game two against BYU, Farrell smashed an RBI single in the first inning, which proved to be the difference in Colorado State’s 1-0 series ending win. On the week, Farrell had three homers, two doubles, eight RBI and three runs scored, while turning in a 1.385 slugging percentage and a fielding percentage of 1.000 from behind the plate. She is batting .371, with seven home runs, 34 RBI and a .643 slugging percentage this season.
