UTEP Softball’s Kacey Duffield Named C-USA Player of the Week

IRVING, Tx – UTEP starting first baseman Kacey Duffield helped the Miners power past North Texas during a series sweep. For her weekend performance, the junior was named the Conference USA Softball Player of the Week on Monday.

Duffield hit .600 (6-10) with a 1.400 slugging percentage. She also produced seven RBI, two doubles, two home runs, four runs, a walk and stolen base during the series sweep against North Texas. Defensively, the junior recorded 17 putouts and committed zero errors.

Duffield started the weekend with a 2-for-4 performance that included a two-run single during the third of game one. Duffield stole a base and scored a run during the fourth frame. She added seven putouts in the first contest. Duffield’s bat stayed for game two, as she registered a career-high four RBI.

She also connected on a two-run home run in the second inning of game two, while adding a two-run double in the fourth frame. Duffield drew a walk in the third and scored a run.

In game three, the Miners had to rally to beat UNT, as Duffield hit a solo home run – her fifth of the season and second of the weekend – during the fourth to get within a run. Duffield also doubled in the second.

Duffield is the second Miner to be named Player of Week after sophomore Pamala Baber was named Player of the Week on Feb. 26.

It’s also the first time since the 2015 season that multiple Miners earned the prestigious honor.

 

Ashely Eldridge was named Player of the Week on March 9, while current UTEP softball graduate assistant Kawehiokalani Netane followed on April 13.
