WACO, Texas (April 11, 2016) – Katera Eltsosie of Lubbock Christian University notched her second Heartland Conference Hitter of the Week award of the season, the league office announced Monday.

Eltsosie helped lead the Lady Chaps to a series win over Oklahoma Panhandle State last week by registering a double and two home runs while driving in six runs, scoring two herself and drawing three walks. The redshirt junior from Albuquerque, N.M., hit .571 for the week while slugging 1.571 for the Lady Chaps. Eltsosie hit two three-run home runs in the third inning of a 22-1 win over the Aggies Saturday.

Today’s weekly batting honor marks the second in Eltsosie’s career, as she was also revered in 2014. In addition, the right-handed pitcher has three Pitcher of the Week accolades, twice of which have occurred this season.

The Lady Chaps host No. 2 West Texas A&M tomorrow at 6 p.m. inside PlainsCapital Park.
