Leslie Bourgeois hits the softball.

Forest, Va. -- Lynchburg College softball's Leslie Bourgeois (Bealeton, Va.) earned the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's Player of the Week award on the heels of a perfect weekend at the plate.

The senior utility infielder was a perfect 6-for-6 in Lynchburg's doubleheader sweep of Methodist on Sunday, with three doubles and three RBI. She also scored four of Lynchburg's 23 runs in the double-dip.

Bourgeois, a two-time All-ODAC selection, led a Lynchburg offense that currently leads Division III in batting average (.520), doubles per game (5.5), and slugging percentage (.800) after the Hornets' opening weekend.

Lynchburg will travel to the Tar Heel State for a quartet of games next weekend in the Grand Slam Triangle Classic.
