Meaghan Sullivan Named Horizon League Player of the Week

INDIANAPOLIS, IND. -- Butler freshman Meaghan Sullivan, who helped lead the Bulldogs to a 5-2 week, has been named Horizon League Softball Player of the Week for the week ending April 4.  She’s the first Butler position player to be honored this spring.

Sullivan, a starting infielder, batted .556 in Butler’s seven games last week.  She was six for nine, while helping Butler to a pair of wins in a three-game league series with UIC.  And she was four for six in Butler’s non-league, doubleheader sweep of Eastern Illinois.  The Wheaton, Ill., player had a slugging percentage of .722 and an on-base percentage of .600 for the week.  Her 10 hits included three doubles.

Butler improved to 31-9 on the season with the three victories last week.  The 31 wins are a school-record.
