Alverno College softball student-athlete Jamie Villalobos has been named Alverno Athlete of the Week for events of Feb. 11-17.

Villalobos (Antioch, Ill.) took care of things on both sides of the plate as she hit .400 in the batter's box, and went 3-1 with a 2.85 ERA in the pitcher's circle in the Inferno's six-game road trip to start the season.

The senior leadoff hitter is now tied with teammate Stef Wilmore as the school's all-time hits leader, now at 139 career hits, as she hit 11-for-25 with seven runs scored in the opening weekend.

The southpaw fanned 14 batters in 19.2 innings pitched and picked up three-straight wins to end the trip.
