SEC Co-Players of the Week - Arkansas' Ashley Diaz, a senior first baseman from South El Monte, Calif., batted .600 in the series sweep of No. 23/22/23 Auburn. In game three, Diaz recorded a two-run home run that began the Razorback offense for the day. It was the 30th home run of her career, moving her into fourth all-time for career home runs in program history.

Missouri's Brooke Wilmes, a sophomore centerfielder from Johnston, Iowa, batted .600 on the week as the Tigers picked up a non-conference win over UMKC and the series over No. 16/21/19 South Carolina. In game two against the Gamecocks, Wilmes went 4-for-5 at the plate, including the walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the eighth to win the game and the series.

SEC Pitcher of the Week - Arkansas' Autumn Storms, a junior right-hander from Temecula, Calif., posted a 2-0 record in the circle as the Razorbacks swept No. 23/22/23 Auburn to close out the regular season. Storms struck out eight batters in 13.0 innings of work, did not allow any walks on the weekend and held her opponents to a .118 batting average.

SEC Freshman of the Week - Alabama's Montana Fouts, a freshman right-handed pitcher from Grayson, Ky., registered a win and a save to help the Crimson Tide sweep No. 9/7/9 LSU and win the 2019 SEC regular-season title. Fouts threw a complete-game shutout in game one, striking out three batters. She then retired all six batters she faced in relief in game two to earn the save.
