Nebraska-Omaha sophomore catcher Sarah Scheppers is the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division II Player of the Week for the week of February 25-March 3.
Scheppers hit .750 (6-for-8) to help lead Nebraska-Omaha to a 3-0 record at the weather-shortened NFCA/Schutt Sports Division II Leadoff Classic last weekend at Irving, Texas. She went 3-for-3 in the Mavericks' season-opening victory over Tarleton State. She had a triple and two runs batted in against Oklahoma Panhandle State, and collected two hits against St. Edward's.
Nebraska-Omaha, the defending NCAA Division II national champion, was ranked No. 1 in the USA Today/NFCA Division II Preseason Top 25. The first regular season top 25 will be announced on March 13.
