Freshman Courtney Jenkins (Piedmont, CA) earned Ivy League Rookie of the Week Honors for the third time this season after batting .462 in four games last week. Jenkins went 4-6 against Yale with 5 RBI, 2 runs, a double and the game-winning homerun in game two. The homerun marked her ninth of the season which puts her tied for third all-time at Brown.

Jenkins is the leading freshman on the squad and is third on the team with a .340 batting average. Jenkins is also leading the team with 35 RBI and nine homeruns, which puts her tied for third in the Ivy League. She is third on the team with 36 hits.
