KU’s Chavez earns Big 12 softball honor


Kansas infielder Daniella Chavez opened her sophomore campaign with Big 12 Conference Player of the Week honors, as announced by the league Tuesday afternoon. The weekly honor marks the first of her career from the conference for the reigning co-Big 12 Freshman of the Year.

Chavez picked up right where she left off after being named the Big 12 Co-Freshman of the Year a season ago, blasting three home runs and driving in 10 runs as Kansas softball opened the season by going 2-3 at the River City Leadoff in Jacksonville, Fla.

Chavez batted .588 and led Kansas in RBIs (10), hits (10) and runs scored (5), while posting a monstrous 1.118 slugging percentage. A year ago, Chavez broke the school record with 67 RBI and hit a freshman-best 16 long balls.
