"After this weekend I am very proud of my team," said Scribner. "Coming off a series where we didn't play our best or score many runs, everyone worked extremely hard and put in the extra effort to prepare for LMU. This weekend was a total team effort and everyone contributed. I am honored to have received WCC Player of the Week and couldn't have done so without my teammates. I was inspired by the determination and fight in my team and this led to a great weekend of all of us. Our team goal is to finish the season strong and this weekend shows that the team is determined to meet that goal."
"It is great to see Kelly be honored this week as she has been our rock on defense and played a fantastic first base," said Santa Clara head coach Lisa Mize. "At the plate she is fierce and a batter to fear. She does not get cheated when she swings the bat and has come up with some clutch bombs this year."
