Samantha Findlay, Michigan
Sr., 1B, Lockport, Ill./East
Findlay paced the Wolverines' offensive efforts at the UCF Tournament, batting .571 (8-for-14) over the five-game stretch with two home runs and 10 RBI. The Lockport, Ill., native tallied at least one hit in each of the tournament games, including multi-hit efforts in the final three slates. Findlay knocked out her third and fourth home runs of the season--both three-run shots--bringing her career tally to 45 and pulling within one of Michigan's school record. This is the second career weekly honor for Findlay.
