Lauren Wedman (Sahuaro) was named Player of the Week by the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) on Tuesday.

Wedman hit .571 (8-for-14) with two home runs, two doubles, seven runs scored and seven RBIs throughout the 4-game season-opening sweep at MSU Denver by Colorado Mesa. Wedman recorded at least one hit and scored at least one run in all four games hitting home runs in the first game of each day’s doubleheader. She also had three multiple-hit and three multiple-RBI games and went 5-for-7 with five runs scored and five RBIs in Monday’s doubleheader, recording two doubles in the final game of the series, a 13-2, 5-inning mercy rule win.

Wedman has now recorded a hit in her last 14 games dating back to 2020 and has reached base safely in 20 consecutive games.

This list will be updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who have gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but collegiate and professional recognitions. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS. If you are aware of anything I have missed along the way, please let me know.
