 TUCSON, Ariz. – For the second consecutive week, pitcher Trish Parks has been named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week, the conference announced on Monday.

Parks earned the honor in week 1 for her brilliant collegiate debut in a three-game series with Oklahoma State, only to follow it up with an impressive week 2 at the Hillenbrand Invitational.

In three starts over the weekend, Parks did not allow an earned run, posting a perfect 0.00 ERA over 13 innings pitched. The freshman won both of her decisions in three appearances. In the Hillenbrand Invitational opener, Parks picked up her second career complete game, going the distance vs. Drake and allowing one unearned run on just three hits. The freshman struck out two while limiting batters to a .255 average over the weekend.

At the plate, Parks continued her hot start, hitting three home runs and registering nine RBI in 14 at-bats, helping Arizona to a perfect 6-0 weekend at the Hillenbrand Invitational. Parks batted .357 and slugged 1.000 in five starts. The freshman scored four runs of her own.

On the season, Parks is hitting .391 with four homers and 14 RBI. The freshman leads the team in the circle with a 4-0 record and a 0.54 ERA.

Parks' recognition is her second in as many weeks and Arizona's Pac-12-leading 142nd conference player of the week overall.

Arizona returns to action on Thursday when it begins the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic in Cathedral City, Calif. The Cats open the Classic with a pair of top-10 teams on Thursday: Kentucky at 10:30 a.m. and Oklahoma at 1:00 p.m. PST.
