EV-W alumna named Player of the Week

University of Northwestern, St. Paul, Eagles softball player Kaylee Forcier of Eden Valley, was voted the UMAC Softball Player of the Week. Forcier, a freshman, had quite the first day of collegiate competition last week, blasting a two-run home run in UNW’s win over Wartburg College in just her second career hit. Forcier posted a .333 batting average and a .667 slugging percentage over the course of the Eagles’ four games between Friday and Saturday, finishing the week with three runs batted in and two runs scored. Forcier will join her team in Clermont, Fla., later this week when Northwestern begins its nine-game slate in the Sunshine State Friday, March 7.
