Morgan Betker of St. Thomas Named Division III Player of the Week

 St. Thomas shortstop Morgan Betker has been named the NFCA Division III Player of the Week for the week ending March 16, the association announced Wednesday. 

Betker, a junior from Bettendorf, Iowa, led the No. 4-ranked 8-0 Tommies to a perfect week at the Sun West tournament in Orange, California, including wins over three nationally-ranked teams. 

Against NAIA No. 3 Point Loma, Betker laced a two-out, two-run single to cap a six-run fifth inning to tie the score at 6-6, and then came back witha game-winning walk-off RBI single in the eighth. 

Against then-No. 24 Central, Betker had two doubles and a home run in the run-rule victory. 

On the week, Betker batted .538 in 13 at-bats, scoring four runs and driving in another four. She also had two doubles and a home run.
