COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Texas A&M softball sophomore Nicole Morgan was named the Big 12 Co-Player of the Week, the conference office announced today.
Morgan (The Woodlands, Texas) was 5-for-8 from the plate this week against a pair of Top 25 opponents in No. 25 Baylor and No. 7 Texas. Her .625 average led the team to a pair of run-rule conference victories. Morgan drew five walks on the week, including a career-best three in the series finale vs. the Longhorns. Her three home runs helped her tally five RBI and five runs this week, again tying a career high two runs against Baylor and in game three vs. Texas.
Texas' Taylor Hoagland also earned the Player of the Week title alongside Morgan, who takes her first conference honor this week. This is the third-consecutive Big 12 weekly honor for the Aggies.
No. 16 A&M hosts Kansas (RV) this weekend in the Aggies' final home series of the regular season. The Aggies and Jayhawks will begin play Friday at 7 p.m. at the Aggie Softball Complex. To learn more about Texas A&M softball, log on to AggieAthletics.com or follow @AggieSoftball on Twitter.
