Haley Woolf named MVC Player of the Week



Woolf hit three home runs in Saturday’s DH sweep


  1. ST LOUIS – Haley Woolf belted three home runs and finished with nine runs batted in to lead the University of Evansville softball team to a perfect 4-0 week and was named the Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Week on Monday.


In a week that featured a road win at Indiana State and a 3-game home sweep over Bradley, Woolf was the difference with a stellar offensive showing.  The junior accumulated a total of three home runs and nine RBI while slugging 1.333.  She added a walk while being hit by two pitches to finish with an on-base percentage of .600.  Woolf batted .500 (6-12) in UE’s four games while scoring six times.


The week began with a 1-4 game at Indiana State where UE picked up a 7-5 win in 10 innings.  When Evansville returned home, that is when Woolf took it to a new level.  A grand slam in the first inning of the opener versus Bradley set the tone.  She finished game one with a perfect 3-for-3 effort with two homers and six RBI.  Woolf’s third homer of the day in game two helped UE to a 10-4 win; she went 1-3 with a 3-run homer while scoring twice.  In Sunday’s 11-1 victory, Woolf was 1-2 with a double, walk and two runs scored.


It is the first MVC Player of the Week honor of her career.
