Emily Flores (FR/Houston, TX) came into the week looking to snap out of a 4-for-16 slump from her previous 10 games.
The freshman from Missouri City found her hitting eye as she compiled a .611 batting average on the week going 11-for-18 and it paid off for the University of Houston-Victoria designated player as she was named the Red River Athletic Conference Softball Player of the Week for the week of April 3-9.
The right-handed hitting Flores was a big key for the Jaguars in their four-game conference sweep over Jarvis Christian as she delivered a walk-off single in the series opener and then closed out a run-rule shortened game in Game 2.
On the week she delivered seven RBI and scored five runs while compiling a .611 slugging percentage and a .667 on-base percentage. She was also 4-for-4 in stolen bases and drew three walks.
Her success at the plate also helped the Jaguars clinch a spot in the RRAC tournament with a current 19-5 conference record. The Jaguars are 28-14 on the year.
Flores managed to increase her season batting average from .222 to .297 with her success at the plate. She now has 16 RBI and 15 runs scored on the season in 38 games and is currently on her longest hitting streak of the season – five games.
LSU-Alexandria's Kasey Cazares was named the RRAC Pitcher of the Week.
