March 14, 2000

GREENSBORO, N.C. - University of Virginia fourth-year third baseman Karen Breshears (Camarillo, Calif./Cornerstone Christian) has been selected as the ACC Softball Player of the Week for the week ending March 12. Breshears had nine hits in 13 at-bats for an impressive .692 batting average in five games this past week.

Breshears raised her average 101 points with her outstanding performance at the plate and is now hitting a team-high .351 (20 for 57) on the season. In addition to the nine hits, Breshears scored four runs and drove in three others, including two with her first home run of the season. She also registered a 1.000 slugging percentage.

Breshears opened the week by going 1-3 with a sacrifice and a run scored in UVa's 4-3 eight-inning win over Pacific on March 10. In Virginia's second game of the day, she went 1-1 with two sacrifices in a 5-3 loss to Central Michigan. In the Cavaliers third game on Friday, a 5-3 loss to Baylor, Breshears was a perfect 3-3 at the plate. Against UCSB on March 11, Breshears was 2-4 with two runs scored and a RBI. The Cavaliers fell to the Gauchos 7-5. In the 'Hoos 10-2 loss to Utah in their final game of the tournament, she continued her torrid hitting with a pair of hits in as many at-bats, including her first home run of the season.

The Cavaliers played all five of their games in the National Invitational Softball Tournament in Sunnyvale, Calif. Virginia went 1-4 on the week and now stands at 7-15 on the season.

Virginia returns to action today, March 14, with a doubleheader at Sacramento State in Sacramento, California.
