LOUISVILLE, Ky. – BYU’s Rylee Jensen and Virginia Tech’s Keely Rochardwere named Louisville/Slugger NFCA Division I National Player and Pitcher of the Week of the Week, respectively, for games played April 8-14. It marks the second NFCA honor this season for Rochard and the second of Jensen’s career.

Jensen, an Idaho Falls, Idaho native, was nearly perfect at the plate last week, batting .900 (9-for-10) and reaching base safely in 11 of her 12 plate appearances. The junior leftfielder double, tripled, homered, drove in four runs and scored five times in a three-game sweep of Pacific. She slugged 1.500 and recorded a .917 on-base percentage. Jensen was a perfect 4-for-4 with a three-bagger and three runs scored in the series opener. The WCC Player of the Week produced a 3-for-3 outing in the finale with a double, long ball, three RBI and two runs. Jensen garnered her first NFCA Player of the Week honor on May 2, 2017.

Rochard was nearly perfect as well for the 21st-ranked Hokies last week, retiring 36 of the 37 batters she faced. She twirled a perfect game with four strikeouts against No. 20 James Madison. It was the seventh in program history and the first against a ranked opponent. Rochard continued her dominance against Virginia. After allowing a leadoff single, the Williamsburg, Va. native retired the next 21 Wahoos, eight via the punchout, to earn the shutout victory.
