University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior Michelle Fuzzard was named Southern Conference player of the week for the fourth time this season.

The fifth-year senior from Huntington Beach, Calif., went 4-for-6 with a home run and five RBIs last week and was walked 10 times in UTC's three-game SoCon series sweep of Elon.

Fuzzard reached base in 14 of her 16 plate appearances last week and had a 1.500 slugging percentage. Her five RBIs last week extended her SoCon-best career total to 197.

The Lady Mocs will be back in action Tuesday when they will host on Tennessee Tech in a non conference matchup. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Jim Frost Stadium at Warner Park.
