LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Rylee Jensen was named the Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association on Tuesday. 

"Rylee Jensen is having an incredible year," BYU head coach Gordon Eakin. "Her performance over the weekend was worthy of this national award. Rylee is driven by her desire for team success. These individual awards, while gratifying and well deserved, are a result of her team-first attitude."

Jensen, an Idaho Falls, Idaho native, was nearly perfect at the plate last week, batting .900 (9-for-10) and reaching base safely in 11 of her 12 plate appearances. The junior leftfielder double, tripled, homered, drove in four runs and scored five times in a three-game sweep of Pacific.

She slugged 1.500 and recorded a .917 on-base percentage. Jensen was a perfect 4-for-4 with a three-bagger and three runs scored in the series opener. The WCC Player of the Week produced a 3-for-3 outing in the finale with a double, long ball, three RBI and two runs. Jensen garnered her first NFCA Player of the Week honor on May 2, 2017.
