Vessels named the national player of the week

Vessels named the national player of the week

Garden City, KS-What a week for Erica Vessels.

The sophomore infielder was named both the Jayhawk Conference and the NJCAA player of the week.

Vessels put up videogame numbers during a week in which Garden City challenged defending national champ Butler, split with Barton and absolutely destroyed Northwest Tech. The sophomore hit seven home runs, including four in a 14-2 rout of Tech on March 31. She added another long ball in the series finale, and when it was all said and done, Vessels compiled this legendary stat line for the week: 12-for-25 (.480), 7 home runs, three doubles and 19 RBI.

Garden City continues conference play on Saturday at home vs. Colby.
