Adriana Perez Named Big 12 Co-Player of the Week
Texas Tech softball standout Adriana Perez was named the Big 12 Co-Player of the Week Tuesday.
The junior became the second Red Raider to earn a Big 12 weekly award this year.
Perez hit .714 (10-for-14) with four home runs and 12 RBIs over the course of four games last week as the Red Raiders extended their winning streak to 13-straight with a midweek run-rule of Midwestern State and then a three-game sweep of Iowa State.
She capped off the weekend with an eighth-inning walk-off home run against the Cyclones to complete the sweep.
Perez shared the award with Oklahoma’s Lauren Chamberlin, who hit five home runs and drove in 11 RBIs during the Sooners four conference wins last week over Oklahoma State and Kansas.
Oklahoma left-hander Keilani Rickers and Missouri’s Chelsea Thomas also split Pitcher of the Week honors.
Perez joins Sandy James as conference weekly award recipients this year after James picked up the honor on Feb. 21.
The Red Raiders and Sooners open their three-game series at 7 p.m. Thursday at the OU Softball Complex in Norman.
