For the first time in her career, Vanessa Shippy has been named Big 12 Softball Player of the Week. The recognition comes after a successful weekend at the Kajikawa Classic, where the Cowgirls went 4-1.
Shippy posted insane numbers this weekend, going 11-for-13 from the plate (an .846 average) with five walks and six RBIs. She also scored nine runs and became the eighth Cowgirl to reach 200 hits.
