 May 8, 2013

- University of Notre Dame junior Laura Winter was named BIG EAST Conference Softball Player of the Year, as announced Wednesday evening during the league's annual awards banquet. Winter was one of seven Irish players to claim all-BIG EAST citations, and became a three-time first team honoree.

Winter led the BIG EAST in six major statistical categories during league play, drilling a conference-best nine home runs and 37 RBI in 64 at-bats. She also paced the conference with a .922 slugging percentage and 59 total bases. Winter is currently tied for the Notre Dame single-season record in overall home runs (17), and has chipped in a team-high 52 RBI.

The 2012 BIG EAST Pitcher of the Year, Winter made just as big of an impact in the circle, posting a conference-high 14 wins while walking only four batters in 96.1 innings, striking out 115. The 6-1 right-hander earned a total of four BIG EAST weekly awards (one player of the week, three pitcher of the week) during the regular season, and became the first Notre Dame student-athlete to win both USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the Week and Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I National Player of the Week honors this season.

She became the eighth Irish player to earn the BIG EAST's top honor during the team's 18 years as a conference member, and the first primary pitcher to cop the award.

All awards are voted on by the league's head coaches, who are not permitted to cast votes for their own players.

Top-seeded Notre Dame opens the BIG EAST Championship at 12:30 p.m. (ET) Thursday at the USF Softball Stadium against No. 8 Seton Hall.

Come on Out and Cheer on the Blue and Gold!

Olivia Oppeltz Winner of one month unlimited group sessions. February's Athlete of the Month is Olivia Oppeltz! Olivia started with the TNL organization three years ago, and is now making quite the name for herself. She began working out at Power Line in 2012, and her hard work is truly pay off. For the month of January Olivia hit .440, and moving into February she continued her growth. In the Triple Crown Presidents Day Showdown Tournament, Olivia finished with a .750 batting average! In one single night she hit three home runs, including a grand slam, which concluded her cycle on the day! At one point during the tournament she was even 11/11! Her athleticism doesn't just show at bat, but on defense as well. She plays both corner positions, allowing zero errors for the month of February. Her father Ken Oppeltz states that, "This truly was her best month ever. Her stats are a result of her hard work on the field, at Power Line, and in the garage where the Tee and Bownet take the place of my car." Congrats on such a successful year so far Olivia. We can't wait to see you continue this year stronger than ever!!
