SEC Player of the Week - Kentucky's Autumn Humes, a fifth-year pitcher from Bald Knob, Ark., was UK's leading hitter on the weekend with a .500 average and three extra-base hits in the series sweep at Texas A&M. Humes had a double, her first career triple and a home run in the series. She scored in the first and third games of the series, with an RBI in both of the first two games. In the circle, Humes won all three games for Kentucky with a 0.89 ERA in 15.2 innings of work and 20 strikeouts.

SEC Pitcher of the Week - Arkansas' Mary Haff, a redshirt-junior right-hander from Winter Haven, Fla., recorded an 0.86 ERA over 16.1 innings in the series win at LSU to help lead the Razorbacks to their first SEC regular-season title in program history. Haff began the week hurling a complete-game shutout, allowing four hits without any walks and striking out four. She took the loss in game two, throwing 6.0 innings and allowing two earned runs on four hits with three strikeouts. Haff capped off the week throwing 3.1 innings of shutout relief in game three, stranding both inherited runners on base as Arkansas claimed its first series win in Baton Rouge.

SEC Newcomer of the Week - Alabama's Savannah Woodard, a sophomore infielder from Warrior, Ala., batted .375 in the series sweep over No. 21/22 Georgia. Woodard reached base at least twice in all three games of the weekend. In the series opener, she drew a career-best two walks and also recorded one run and one stolen base. In game two, Woodard went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and three RBI.

SEC Freshman of the Week - Kentucky's Erin Coffel, a freshman shortstop from Bremen, Ind., posted a .333 batting average in the three wins at Texas A&M. Her lead-off double in the top of the eighth inning led Kentucky to an extra-innings win on Saturday afternoon to secure the series. On Sunday, Coffel went 2-for-3 with an RBI, her 50th on the season, to lead all Kentucky players and extend her freshman record at Kentucky in runs batted in. She was also hit by pitches in each of the first two games on the weekend series.
