Player of the Week - Brianna Robinson, Butler Community College
Brianna Robinson led Butler at the plate as the Grizzlies found themselves in some offensive showdowns over the past week. She hit a homer in each of Butler's first three games. She hit .455 (10-22), scoring seven runs with 13 RBI, an average of better than two per game played this week. She also had a double and drew three walks with just two strikeouts.
Pitcher of the Week - Tia Kohl, Barton Community College
Tia Kohl came up huge this past week posting a pair of complete game road victories in conference play. Locked in a pitcher's dual in Colby on Wednesday, Kohl sent the first nine Trojans down in order before erasing a fourth inning hit-by-pitch by fielding a sac bunt for the first out then striking out the final two ending the threat. Kohl's no-hit bid was spoiled in the fifth inning but stayed dialed in sending the next six batters down in order and 9-of-the-last-10 to protect the shutout.
Two days later in El Dorado, Kohl was pivotal in the Cougars' biggest game of the year in snapping a number of streaks and most notable 13th ranked Butler's 77 game conference winning streak. Going the distance for the win, Kohl picked her spots to attack the Grizzly hitters with the lone big mistake coming in the fifth on a two-run home run but ended the inning snaring a line drive back to the circle for a double play to squelch any Butler momentum
