OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Mount Mary University junior pitcher/catcher Katie Edwards (Mackinaw, Ill.) has been awarded the Association of Division III Independents softball Player of the Week. Edwards had a strong week for the Blue Angels at the dish, batting .375 (6-for-16) with two homers and ten RBI as she helped lead Mount Mary to the program's first win since April 27, 2012 with a win over fellow AD3I foe Maranatha Baptist on Saturday. Despite being held hitless against a much-improved MSOE team, the team captain responded with clutch hitting in doubleheaders against Rockford and Maranatha Baptist. The junior finished the twinbill at Rockford 3-for-5, driving in both of the teams runs in the nightcap and threw six strong innings in the circle in game two, allowing only two earned runs with a season-high five punchouts. Edwards capped off the week with an impressive showing versus the Crusaders, going 3-for-7 with two long balls, eight RBI and three runs scored as the Blue Angels secured the sweep.
