San Jose, Calif. - For the second week in a row, Jessie Hufstetler is the Mountain West Softball Player of the Week for the week ending April 10. The announcement came from the conference office on Tuesday morning.
In three games at Utah State, the senior from Atascadero, Calif., hit .500 (5-for-10), drove in nine and scored six times. Hufstetler slugged 1.700, had an on-base percentage of .583 and a 1.000 fielding percentage, as the Spartans took two-of-three from the Aggies.
She drove in at least one run with each of her five hits, blasting four home runs, all two-run shots, and an RBI single.
In the final game of the series, a 15-3 SJSU win, Hufstetler went 3-for-4 with two homers. She scored three runs, and drove in five. The left-handed slugger passed Pat Martinez (1993-96) for the program's total bases record and Brittany McConnell (2006-10) for the RBI record. She finished the series with 170 career RBIs, 364 total bases and moved to within one home run of Kara Kanney (27 in 1996-98, '00) for second place on the SJSU all-time home run list.
Hufstetler is the first player this season to be honored twice by the conference in its weekly award program. It's the fourth time in her career she had received the award.
