Player of the Week
Danielle Kinley, Penn State
So., OF, Carlsbad, Calif./Carlsbad
Kinley batted .727 (8-for-11) with three doubles and six RBI to earn All-Tournament accolades at the Carolina Classic last weekend. With her perfect 5-for-5 performance against North Carolina, the sophomore outfielder broke the school record for hits in a game, which was previously four. Her slugging percentage for the weekend was an outstanding 1.000 and Kinley went 3-for-3 when coming up with the bases loaded and 5-for-6 (.833) in RBI opportunties. The Carlsbad, Calif., native earns her first Player of the Week honor.
Co-Pitchers of the Week
Lorilyn Wilson, Michigan
Sr., P, Salem, Ore./Sprague
Wilson registered a pair of double-digit strikeout performances and a 1.21 ERA at the Wilson DeMarini Invitational last weekend. She fanned 10 batters in the season opener against Texas-Arlington and then tallied 13 strikeouts, just one shy of her personal best against Houston. Wilson also claimed her fourth career save in a 3-1 victory over Ole Miss, striking out two and retiring three straight batters in one inning of work. Wilson picks up her fifth Big Ten weekly accolade as she was also honored three times in 2005 (Feb. 22, March 21 and April 11) and once last season (March 27, 2006).
Lauren Delaney, Northwestern
Fr., P, Jefferson City, Mo./Helias
Delaney won her first two collegiate starts, picking up wins against No. 21 Fresno State and No. 8 Stanford last weekend at the Kajikawa Classic. In a 4-3 victory over FSU, the freshman allowed just two earned runs and fanned 10 batters. Delaney then allowed just three hits and a walk to earn a 3-1 win over Stanford. She closed out the weekend, tallying a 1.24 ERA and striking out 16 batters.
