This week’s Jayhawk Conference softball awards will be heading to Canada as the conference announced today that Seward County freshman Taylor McDougall has been named the Player of the Week and Lady Saints sophomore ace Sydney Cicchetti has yet again been named the Pitcher of the Week.

McDougall finished Wednesday’s double header with Colby 3 for 7 with a home run and 4 RBI’s. In game one she was 1 for 3 with an RBI single and in game two she finished 2 for 4 with a home run, and 3 RBI’s while also scoring 3 runs. Cicchetti earns the award for the 6th time this season after spinning another gem on Wednesday against the Lady Trojans, allowing just 3 hits in her second straight shutout while striking out 13 Colby hitters. Seward will need the two to come up big today as the Lady Saints take on Jayhawk West rival Butler starting at 2:00.
