Christina Pickett Named NSIC Player of the Week

BURNSVILLE, Minn. -- Following an outstanding road trip in the Rocky Mountains, Augustana softball senior is the NSIC Player of the Week. Over the course of four games, Pickett hit .818 with nine hits, including two doubles and one triple.

The senior stepped up when needed, driving in seven runs over the final two games, and finishing with eight RBI overall.

Pickett finished the four games with a 1.182 slugging percentage, .846 on-base percentage, and a 2.028 OPS.

The Maplewood, Minnesota, native started the weekend with a 2-for-2, RBI performance against MSU Denver, helping the Vikings to a 5-0 win. She carried the momentum into Saturday, finishing 2-for-2 with three RBI against Colorado School of Mines in game one.

Game two proved to be the most impressive of the weekend for Pickett. An RBI triple in the fifth gave the Vikings the lead, and a three-run double in the sixth broke the game open. Pickett finished 4-for-4 with four RBI in game two.

The NSIC Player of the Week honor marks the second of Pickett's career.

Pickett and the Vikings head to the 2020 Spring Games in Clermont, Florida. Augustana is scheduled to play 10 games over five days in the Orlando suburb.
