Northwestern sophomore Amy Letourneau today swept both National Player of the Week awards, earning the Louisville Slugger/NFCA honor and the USA Softball College accolade.

The awards come on the heels of being named the B1G Player of the Week on Monday. Letourneau and the Wildcats return to action at 4 p.m. CT today against Loyola (Chicago) at Sharon J. Drysdale Field.

"Amy has had great poise in big moments this season, and that is what it comes down to," head coach Kate Drohan said. "When we have to get an out in the circle or need that two-out RBI base hit, Amy is getting it done. She is really locked in right now."

"This is such an amazing honor to be chosen for this award, especially with all of the great players around the country who have earned it already this season," Letourneau said. "We had a great week of preparation leading up to last weekend and it really helped us perform and take the next step as a team. We are playing with such a winning attitude right now both on defense and in the batter's box, and I have been able to feed off of that confidence."
