Arizona first baseman Jessie Harper is the Pac-12 Player and Freshman of the Week for her performance in the Wildcats weekend series over Arizona State.
t's the second time Harper has won for top player, and it's her third honor for top freshman.
Harper had eight runs batted in in three games, including two home runs on Sunday. It was the fifth time this season she's had a multi-home run game. Harper is second in the Pac-12 in home runs with eighteen, trailing teammate Katiyana Mauga.
Three times in Friday night's game, Harper came to bat with two out and a runner on base, and each time she got a hit.
The 47-5, third ranked Wildcats, have had seven of the twelve Pac-12 Players of the week. Arizona closes out the regular season at No. 12 UCLA this weekend.
