Culver City, Calif. -- University of Lynchburg's softball team continued to rack up the awards Tuesday after a big season-opening weekend as Fastpitch News selected sophomore outfielder Kortney Leazer (Remington, Va.) as its NCAA Division III Player of the Week.

Leazer helped lead Lynchburg to a pair of 5-inning, run-rule victories at Methodist Saturday, winning 11-0 and 9-1.

She went 3-for-4 in the opener with a run scored and three RBI and followed that with a 1-for-2 effort in the nightcap. (Note: A scoring change by Methodist late Tuesday altered Leazer's original statistical line.)
