By Lance Swan
Wisconsin-Eau Claire infielder Casey Leisgang has been named the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division III Player of the Week for the week ending March 23, the association announced Wednesday.
The Seymour, Wisconsin, native led the seventh-ranked Blugolds to an 8-1 week, including a 9-1 win over Lakeland College in which she walked four times, three of them intentionally, and scored three times. In an extra-inning game against Delaware Valley, Leisgang homered, bringing in two runs to help lead Eau Claire to the 12-8 victory.
On the week, the senior batted .621 in 29 at-bats, with 18 hits, three doubles, two triples and a home run. Leisgang also drove in five runs while scoring 15 times herself.
