Jenny Schaper (LS '15) Named SEC player of the Week

Congratulation to alum Jenny Schaper (LS '15) for being named SEC player of the Week. Jenny is currently a senior playing softball at the University of Kentucky. "She hit three home runs in UK's first sweep of No. 14 Auburn since 2009 over the weekend. She also had the game-winning run on a solo HR in the bottom of the sixth in a 0-0 game to clinch a sweep of the Tigers on her Senior Weekend on Monday night.

In the last two games of the series alone, Schaper clubbed five hits in seven at-bats with three HR's and six RBI. Her three hits in the game vs. Auburn on Sunday set a new career high.

Additionally, in UK's midweek contest at Louisville, Schaper had the game-tying sacrifice fly to the warning track in center field to tie the game at 7-7 when the Wildcats were down a run. Her .583 on-base percentage led Kentucky in the three games over the weekend."
