NMSU's Jennings Named WAC Hitter of the Week

NMSU's Jennings Named WAC Hitter of the Week

New Mexico State softball senior Tiare Jennings earned Hitter of the Week honors from the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) for her performances last week against UTEP and at the Troy Cox Classic, the league office announced Monday.


The honor is the first of the year for Jennings and fourth career accolade from the WAC. Prior to this week's recognition, she was honored twice last year by the league in back-to-back weeks during mid-April. Jennings' first weekly WAC honor occurred her freshman year on Feb. 23. It marks the first conference accolade of the season for the Aggies. NM State was recognized by the conference a record six times for weekly awards in 2011.


Jennings, a senior utility player from Turlock, Calif., led the Aggies to a 5-2 record last week. She hit .600 with 12 hits, two doubles, four home runs, five walks, 10 runs scored and an amazing 18 RBI over the seven games. She posted a 1.300 slugging percentage and a .654 on-base percentage for the week.


Jennings set the New Mexico State single-game record with eight RBI in a win over UTEP Feb. 14, including a walk-off grand slam to end the game. She went 3-for-3 at the plate and reached base in all five of her at-bats with two walks, a single and a double to go along with the game-ending slam. She also hit two home runs in the same inning against Weber State and hit a homer against No. 24 Nebraska to account for both Aggie runs.


With the four home runs Jennings moved into sole possession of second place, behind former teammate Hoku Nohara, on the NM State all-time home run list with 47 passing former teammate Ashley Maroda.
"Tiare has stepped up as our team's leader and has been an absolute warrior this year," said associate head coach Cat Heifner. "I am glad she was recognized by the conference for her tenacity and accomplishments so far this season."


Jennings came into the season as a member of the 2012 All-WAC preseason team after earning All-WAC first team and NFCA All-District honors last year.


She and her NM State teammates conclude the I-10 rivalry series with UTEP at 5 p.m. Tuesday in El Paso. Later in the week the Aggies face another difficult road challenge at the Cathedral City Classic. NM State will play five games this weekend in Palm Springs including three against top-25 teams from the Pac-12 in No. 3 Cal, No. 8 Stanford and No. 19 Oregon.
