Husker freshman softball catcher Taylor Edwards was named the Big 12 Player of the Week. Taylor helped NU go 5-0 this past weekend in a tournament in North Texas by going 9-for-17 with five home runs and 12 RBIs.
She has now homered in an NCAA-record six straight games in just her 11th career game. Edwards set the NCAA record with a solo home run in the seventh inning of Nebraska’s final game against Tennessee Tech. Edwards leads Nebraska with a .405 batting average, two doubles, seven home runs and 19 RBIs in only 11 games.
