NOTRE DAME, Ind. – For the second time this season, Notre Dame softball player freshman Andria Bledsoe (Higley, Ariz.) has been named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week. Bledsoe earned the same honor March 13.

In the team’s five games last week, Bledsoe hit .533 (8-for-15) with four scored, a pair of doubles, a triple and three RBI. Notre Dame’s starting third baseman also had the game-winning RBI in the team’s 3-0 win over Connecticut, going 2-for-3 with a run scored. Currently, Bledsoe is third on the team in multi-hit games with eight this season, including two last week, and has the team’s longest active and second-longest hitting streak at nine games.
