Utah's Mariah Lopez was named the Pac-12 Softball Pitcher of the Week, presented by Rawlings, for April 17. Lopez pitched in four of Utah's five games last week and collected three victories while posting a 0.89 ERA in 23 2/3 innings and racking up 29 strikeouts against only four walks. In her first outing of the week, she threw 6 2/3 innings without allowing an earned run and picked up a win over BYU, then followed that with 4 2/3 innings of one-run relief against Weber State. Lopez tossed a complete game and didn't allow an earned run with one walk and six strikeouts in a 4-1 win to open the series against No. 5 Stanford. She capped her week with another solid start, holding the Cardinal to two earned runs in 5 1/3 innings with eight strikeouts in a 5-4 Ute victory on Sunday, which secured Utah its first three-game sweep of a top-five opponent in program history.
