Andrea Loman (Riverside, Calif.) was named the BIG EAST Player of the Week by the conference on Monday, Mar. 19, for her performance during the Kia Klassic last weekend in Fullerton, Calif.
The sophomore helped the Irish finish third in the tournament and knock off #7 Fresno State and #10 Arizona State in the process – handing the Sun Devils their first loss of the season.
Loman went five-for-11 against top-10 competition and recorded a .434 (10-for-23) batting average in six Kia Klassic games. She also scored five runs and posted three RBI with a home run.
Loman is the second Irish played to earn Player of the Week honors this season (Jenny Kriech, Feb. 26).
