College softball
SAU's players sweep honors: St. Ambrose's Kathryn Brown and Sarah Frerichs swept Midwest Collegiate Conference pitcher and player of the week honors, respectively, as the Queen Bees went 10-0 last week. Brown (Jr., P, Oskaloosa, Iowa) was 2-0 with a save and a 0.89 ERA over 15 2/3 innings. She struck out 13 batters with just two walks and only permitted two runs. Her best showing came against William Penn with a two-hit shutout. Frerichs (Sr., CF, Fisher, Ill.) hit .622 (12-for-23) with two doubles, two triples and two home runs. She scored 11 runs and drove in seven.

College track & field
SAU trio honored: St. Ambrose University had two of its track athletes – Wes Vaden and Marissa Dunkerley – selected for weekly Midwest Collegiate Conference honors. Vaden (Sr., Bushnell, Ill.) was tabbed men's field event performer of the week after winning two events at the Beloit Relays. He set track records in the shot put (49-feet, 7-inches) and the hammer (155-2). He was also sixth in the discus (134-5), helping the Fighting Bees to the team title by more than 70 points. Dunkerley (Soph., Peoria, Ill.) also won twice at the Beloit Relays. She won the 400 with an MCC-leading time of 1:00.63 and then helped the 4x400-meter relay team (4:07.89) to a title. Her 400 time is the third best all-time at SAU and the relay squad broke the track record.

Former North Scott High School standout Jenna Higgins was deserved winner of the women's field event weekly honor. The senior topped all javelin participants (mostly NCAA Division I athletes) at the Drake Relays with a toss of 178-5. That personal-best throw leads the NAIA and meets the automatic-qualifying standard for the U.S. Championships.

College men's lacrosse
Viking Burgdorff nabs honor: Augustana's Cody Burgdorff was tabbed Midwest Lacrosse Conference (MLC) defender of the week honors. Burgdorff (Soph., goalie, Lafayette, Colo.) totaled 13 saves during a 9-6 win over Concordia (Wis.) that clinched the Vikings the No. 3 seed in the 2013 MLC Tournament. He also finished with six saves in a 16-6 win at Benedictine, as well as eight saves and zero goals against in a 14-2 win over Elmhurst.

College women's lacrosse
Augie's Shelton feted: Augustana's Nattali Shelton was named the Midwest Women's Lacrosse Conference (MWLC) defender of the week. Shelton (Soph., midfielder, Wheaton-Warrenville South HS), helped the Vikings go 2-0 last week, including securing their first conference title in program history. She had one caused turnover during a 23-2 win over Benedictine that gave Augie an 8-0 conference record. She followed with seven caused turnovers and four ground balls during a 26-0 shutout of Dubuque.
