Kelsey Rodriguez wins Pac-12 softball player of the week

Arizona softball senior Kelsey Rodriguez was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week on Tuesday.

The utility player had six hits in nine at bats this past week in the Wildcat Invitational, the most on the team. Five of her six hits were doubles. She drove in two runs and scored five times over the span of five games, which Arizona went a perfect 5-0.

This is Rodriguez’s first ever conference Player of the Week award and the first for the Wildcats this season.

Coming up for Arizona the team travels to Fullerton, Calif., on Friday to play Michigan in the Judi Garman Classic. Next weekend the Wildcats will play a total of five games before starting conference play on March 15 at UCLA.
