 TUCSON, Ariz. – In the first three games of her collegiate career, Trish Parks was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week, the conference announced Monday. Parks is the conference's first ever freshman of the week, an award debuting in 2015.

Parks got it done on both sides of the ball, excelling both in the batter's box and in the pitcher's circle. The freshman homered on the very first pitch she saw in her collegiate career, paving the way from an impressive debut from the Chino, Calif., native. Parks led the team with five RBI as Arizona opened the season with three victories over Oklahoma State in the season-opening series at Hillenbrand Stadium. For the week, Parks hit .444, slugged .889 and scored three runs.

Parks appeared in all three games in the circle over the weekend, leading the Wildcats to a sweep of Oklahoma State to open the 2015 season. The freshman totaled 13 innings and allowed just two earned runs, good for a 1.08 ERA over her first three collegiate appearances. Parks struck out 10 batters while walking just one in the 13 innings. On Saturday, the Chino, Calif., native went the distance, tossing a two-hit shutout in her first career start, allowing just two infield singles in the process. Parks followed that performance by pitching the final four innings of an extra-inning thriller in game three in which she struck out five batters and allowed just three hits. On the weekend, Parks limited opponents to a .109 batting average; Parks did not allow an extra-base hit.

Parks' recognition is Arizona's Pac-12-leading 141st conference player of the week.

Arizona returns to action on Thursday for the first game of the Hillenbrand Invitational. Arizona hosts Drake at 6 p.m. for its first of six games at home next weekend.
