Player of the Week 

 Skylar Wallace, Florida

Wallace, a redshirt junior infielder from Woodstock, Ga., batted .545 with six hits, six runs scored and six RBI in the win over Bucknell and the series win over Missouri. In the Gators' come-from-behind win over Missouri, Wallace drove in the game-tying RBI in the bottom of the seventh inning, stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error, and then scored on a wild pitch. Defensively, she posted three putouts and 12 assists, including a season-high five assists in the series finale win over the Tigers.

Pitcher of the Week

 Karlyn Pickens, Tennessee

Pickens, a freshman right-hander from Weaverville, N.C., collected a pair of wins at No. 10 LSU to help the Lady Vols to their first sweep of a top-10 team since 2015. On Saturday, Pickens fanned nine batters in the complete-game one-hit shutout, her second in SEC play. She also appeared in the series finale on Sunday, striking out three batters in 1.2 innings of work to earn the win.

Freshman of the Week

 Reis Beuerlein, Mississippi State

Beuerlein, a right-handed pitcher from Cave Creek, Ariz., tossed her first career complete game and MSU's fifth of the season in the mid-week win over Purdue. Beuerlein broke the MSU freshman record with 14 strikeouts against the Boilermakers. She also fanned five batters over five innings of work during the series sweep over South Carolina.
