BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU softball senior third baseman Amanda Sanchez has been named the SEC Player of the Week after the way she swung the bat in the Texas A&M series.

Sanchez, a native of West Covina, CA, leads the Tigers at the plate last week, hitting .700. She had seven hits, including two home runs. She finished with five RBI and four runs scored. She also had a 1.300 slugging percentage and a .750 on-base percentage.

She went 3-for-4 in game one and game two of the Texas A&M series.

Sanchez’s first home run of the weekend, her second of the year, came in Friday’s 17-3 five-inning blowout of the Aggies. She sent a solo shot over the right field wall.

She now leads the team in batting average on the season at .429 with 20 runs scored, 32 hits, SEC-high of 10 doubles, three home runs, and 30 RBI, with a .785 slugging percentage and a .616 on-base percentage.
