Reynolds Earns Another Pac-12 Player Of The Week
SAN FRANCISCO - For the second time this year and third time in her career, Sami Reynolds has earned Pac-12 Player of the Week. This is Reynolds' fourth career weekly honor from the Pac-12, having also earned Freshman of the Week once in 2019.
Last week, Reynolds hit .556/.636/1.556, hitting home runs in all three Pac-12 games against the #4 Oregon Ducks. Reynolds has now homered five times in seven career games against the Ducks. She scored at least one run in all four games of the series. Reynolds is the ninth player in the Pac-12 and second Husky to reach double-digit home runs on the year, now with a career-best ten through 40 games.
Reynolds is the first Husky to earn multiple Pac-12 Player of the Week awards in the same season since Julia DePonte and Kirstyn Thomas both earned it twice in 2018. Reynolds' three career Player of the Week awards are the second most in Pac-12 history: only Jaime Clark, who earned the award four times, has more career Player of the Week awards. Clark, Reynolds, and Kristen Rivera are the only Huskies ever to earn three Pac-12 Player of the Week awards in their careers.
Reynolds now has four weekly awards in her career from the Pac-12. No Husky hitter has ever had more weekly awards from the Pac-12 in their careers. Only six Huskies ever have more weekly awards, all pitchers: Danielle Lawrie, Gabbie Plain, Jennifer Spediacci, Taran Alvelo, Eve Gaw, and Stephanie Burns.
This weekend, the Huskies head to California for a series between the top two teams in the Pac-12 standings, taking on UCLA. That series begins Friday, April 23. The Friday and Saturday games will air on the Pac-12 Network, while the Sunday game will air on ESPN.
