Nebraska softball’s Tristen Edwards was named yesterday the Big Ten Player of the Week. 

The senior outfielder earned the award for the fourth time in her career.

In five games during NU’s season-opening tournament in Las Cruces, New Mexico last weekend, Edwards went 7-for-16 at the plate, scoring nine runs and driving in five.  She belted four homers and doubled twice, helping the Huskers go 3-2 in the tourney.
