Cox Earns Second-Straight MAC West Player of Week Honor
MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. - Central Michigan junior Trista Cox earned MAC West Player of the Week honors for the second-straight week, the league office announced Monday.

Cox picked up where she left off last week, hitting a two-run homer in the opening game of the UTA Maverick Invitational in Arlington, Texas Friday. The junior finished the weekend 8-for-14 (.571) with two home runs and six RBI as CMU picked up a pair of wins over South Dakota State.

In the first two weekends of the season, Cox has tallied five home runs, tying her total from all of last season, marking her 10th career home run for the Chippewas. 

Central Michigan (5-4) is back in action this weekend in Louisville, Ky. for the Cardinal Classic. The Chippewas will open the tournament Friday against Northern Kentucky (1-4) at 10 a.m. ET.
