MILWAUKEE, Wis. (naccsports.org) --- Wisconsin Lutheran College pitcher Abby Mahsem (South Milwaukee, Wis.) and Concordia University Wisconsin outfielder Becky Bonnin (Kenosha, Wis.) have been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Softball Student-Athletes of the Week for week of April 1-7, 2019, as selected by the league's sports information directors.

NACC Pitcher of the Week
Mahsem, a right-handed pitcher, earned two wins in the circle Saturaday as the Warriors swept Rockford to extend their winning streak to four games. The reigning NACC Pitcher of the Year scattered three hits and struck out nine in a complete-game effort in game one as WLC won 2-0. Mahsem then pitched 6 1/3 shutout innings in relief with four strikeouts as the Warriors earned a 6-3 win in game two.

NACC Position Player of the Week
Bonnin, a senior, had an incredible week at the plate for the Falcons, hitting .692 and slugging 1.077 with a .750 on-base percentage as CUW swept league doubleheaders from Alverno and Dominican on the road last week. She was 9-for-13 with two doubles and a home run, adding five RBIs and four runs scored. Bonnin also walked twice and stole a base.

Note: Two games suspended due to Sunday's inclement weather - Wisconsin Lutheran at Edgewood and Lakeland at Concordia Wisconsin - were completed Monday and were not included for consideration in this week's award. They will be included for consideration with games played April 8-14.
