SEC Co-Players of the Week - Florida's Kendyl Lindaman, a senior first baseman/catcher from Ankeny, Iowa, went 4-for-4 in two wins over Penn and No. 12/10/10/10 Florida State last week. Lindaman registered four hits, including two home runs. Her first home run came in the 1st inning to give the Gators a 1-0 lead against the Quakers, and her second came in the 3rd inning of a tied 2-2 game against the Seminoles. Lindaman recorded her seventh home run of the season off FSU reliever Kathryn Sandercock to give the Gators a 4-2 lead that it would not give up. Lindaman also contributed three runs scored, three RBI and two walks over the two games.

Mississippi State's Mia Davidson, a junior catcher from Hillsborough, N.C., went 4-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in the win over Southern Miss. Davidson was a triple shy of hitting for the cycle, hitting her second home run of the night instead. Her career-high four hits tied for third in school history and one shy of the MSU single-game record. Davidson posted the 41st multi-homer game in school history, her second of the year and seventh of her career.

SEC Pitcher of the Week - Florida's Natalie Lugo, a junior right-hander from West Covina, Calif., extended her scoreless inning streak to 14.0 innings after a pair of saves against Penn and No. 12/10/10/10 Florida State last week. Lugo secured a 3-1 win over the Quakers when she entered in the 5th inning and limited the opposition to just three base runners and struck out five. In the 6th inning against Florida State, Lugo entered with a 4-2 lead and retired six of the final seven Seminole batters she faced for her league-leading sixth save of the year.

SEC Freshman of the Week - Kentucky's Miranda Stoddard, a utility player from Anaheim Calif., hit the game-winning three-run home run in the bottom of the 6th inning to complete an 11-run comeback in the 16-15 win over Marshall. It was Stoddard's first home run of her career. She was also the winning pitcher of the game, throwing the final 2.0 innings without allowing a run and striking out two batters.
