UL Lafayette's Lexie Elkins earned the Sun Belt Conference Softball Player of the Week honor.
The No. 21/22-ranked Ragin' Cajuns swept WKU to take control of first place in the Sun Belt Conference softball standings.
Elkins, a sophomore, was the catalyst of the Ragin' Cajuns offense in their three-game sweep of WKU. The catcher hit a pair of home runs in Saturday's doubleheader, driving in six runs on the day and eight over the entire weekend.
The former Titan homered in each of the first two games, driving in the game-winning runs with both. She ranks second in the conference in RBI with 41 and is third in home runs with 10. The Player of the Week award is Elkins' second honor this season.
