Waldek Named Player of the Week for Second Straight Week
ST. PAUL - Martin Luther College junior Emily Waldek was named UMAC Player of the Week in softball for the second consecutive week.
Waldek continued her torrid pace to start the season, going 7-10 with two walks and a hit by pitch for a .769 on-base percentage in four games over the weekend. In Saturday's double header against Loras, Waldek went 6-6 with a home run and a double to lead the MLC offense.
Through the season's first nine games, Waldek is now hitting .630 (17-27) with a 1.074 slugging percentage, .706 on-base percentage, 13 runs scored, eight extra-base hits, and three stolen bases.
Waldek and the Knights are scheduled to return to action tomorrow (Wednesday, April 2) when they host Bethany Lutheran for a double header starting at 3 p.m.
