Three Vikings Named GNAC Players of the Week

Western Washington first baseman Emily Benson (So., West Richland, WA/Kamiakin) made the most of the extra games last week.

Making up three rained out games from earlier in the season, the Vikings’ softball team played seven games, with Benson taking full advantage of the extra at-bats. The sophomore was selected the Softball Player of the Week after hitting for a .609 average (14 for 23) with five home runs, 16 runs batted in, 11 runs scored and a 1.261 slugging percentage. Benson leads the GNAC with 12 home runs and 40 RBI, becoming Western Washington’s single-season home run record holder.
