LAFAYETTE � On the strength of four home runs over a six-game span last week, UL softball�s Gabriele Bridges was named Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week.

Bridges batted .471 on the week, going 8-for-17 with four home runs, six runs scored and eight RBI. She boasted a slugging percentage of 1.176 and walked two times for an on-base percentage of .526.

The sophomore reached base safely in all six games she played on the week, hitting safely in five games. She knocked back a pair of home runs against both Middle Tennessee and FIU.

Bridges scored a run in each of the six games she played in and had two multiple hit games on the week, including a 3-for-3 performance against Middle Tennessee with a home run and three RBI and a 2-for-3 effort with a home run and two RBI.
