SOFTBALL Player of the Week - March 26-April 1, 2012
Cal State Fullerton senior Nicole Johnson was named the Big West Conference Player of the Week on Monday afternoon after a perfect weekend from the senior helped lift the Titans to a series victory on the road at Cal Poly.
Johnson, who was named a weekly award winner for the first time in her career, was a perfect 5-for-5 at the plate with five runs scored and four RBI while also drawing five walks (two intentionally) and being hit by a pitch once. She slugged 2.000 for the weekend as three of her five hits went for extra bases on a pair of doubles and her fifth home run of the season.
With the award, Johnson becomes the first Titan field player to earn weekly honors from the conference office since teammate Gabby Aragon was named the winner on April 26, 2010.
