Megan Langenfeld Named Pac-10 Softball Player of the Week

March 13, 2007

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UCLA freshman Megan Langenfeld has been named the Pac-10 Softball Player of the Week for Mar. 6-12, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

UCLA went 6-0 last week, 5-0 at the Long Beach State Invitational, and Langenfeld hit safely in every game for the Bruins with the exception of Saturday against Canisius when she did not get an official plate appearance while walking once and twice being hit by a pitch.

Langenfeld was a jack-of-all-trades for UCLA. She homered on Wednesday against Cal State Fullerton, her fourth of the season, had a hit and two sacrifice bunts Friday vs. Southern Utah, then doubled and drove in a run in UCLA's 8-0 win over Eastern Kentucky later that same Friday.

After walking off the two bean balls she absorbed against Canisius, Langenfeld heated up even more, going 2-for-3 against Long Beach State with a triple and RBI in a big Bruin victory. Sunday, Langenfeld again went 2-for-3 against Notre Dame, picking up three more RBI in a 9-3 win.

For the week, the Bakersfield, Calif. native led the Bruins with a .538 batting average (7-for-13) with three runs scored, a double, triple, home run, six RBI, four walks, three hit-by-pitches and two sacrifice bunts. Her on-base percentage of .700 was a team-high and she slugged 1.000 for the week, as well as playing perfect defense on 24 chances.

No. 12/15 UCLA (21-6) is done with tournament play and plays only once this week. They host Southern Utah today then take a break until Mar. 25. The Bruins have won nine-straight and 13 of their past 14 games.

This is the first career Player of the Week honor for Langenfeld, and the 96th Player/Pitcher of the Week all-time for UCLA.
