Amanda Lorenz was named the Southeastern Conference’s Player of the Week for her performance in Florida’s four wins last week. The big week by Lorenz was just what she needed after struggling for much of the month. This is the second such honor for Lorenz this season.
Lorenz finished the week with a .636 average (7-11) and hit a pair of home runs against #19 Mississippi State in the weekend series.
The junior from Moorpark, CA also hit a double, a triple, walked three times and scored seven runs in leading the Gators to a 4-0 record.
Lorenz is leading the team with a .409 average on the season and 44 RBI buy had been in a slump until busting out Wednesday against Florida A&M.
The talented outfielder had struggled since the beginning of April to the tune of a .188 average over eight games.
Lorenz and the Gators will take on rival Florida State on Wednesday in Gainesville where she will also be celebrating her 21st birthday.
