PROVO, Utah -- BYU junior outfielder Oli Keohohou has been named Mountain West Conference Softball Player of the Week. This is her second weekly honor of the season and the sixth of her career.

Keohohou went 4-for-5 (.800) from the plate in three conference games last week. The Newbury Park, Calif., native, hit a home run, drove in two runs and scored four of her own. Against San Diego State, Keohohou started the game with a single to center and came around to score on a fielder's choice, giving the Cougars an early 1-0 lead. In game one against UNLV, she went 1-for-1 from the plate, with an RBI and two runs scored in the 3-2 Rebel win. In game two, Keohohou went 2-for-2 and belted her 18th homer of the season (second in the nation) in BYU's 14-0 victory. She currently ranks in the top-10 nationally in batting average (.461, 10th), home runs (18, second) and RBI (41, 10th), and also has a 1.127 slugging percentage.

Keohohou leads the Cougars in their final home games this season against Colorado State on Friday in a doubleheader at 5 p.m. and New Mexico on Saturday at noon. Both doubleheaders will be at Miller Park.
