ATLANTA – Junior Brittany Barnes was named Atlantic Coast Conference Softball Player of the Week, announced by the league office on Monday. Barnes, a native of Lawrenceville, Ga., earns the honor for first time this season.

Barnes led the 20th-ranked Yellow Jackets to their third consecutive sweep in ACC action and a school record 15-game winning streak with a 5-0 mark last week. The third baseman had a pair of hits in a sweep over in-state rival Georgia State, 6-2 and 4-1, on Wednesday.

Over the weekend against Virginia, Barnes exploded for three home runs and 10 RBIs in the doubleheader on Friday in a pair of five-inning wins, 12-3 and 15-0. On Saturday, Barnes went 3-for-4, with two doubles, to lead the Jackets to an 11-10 come-from-behind victory.

Barnes extended her hitting streak to a career-high seven games, and hit .500, with three home runs, two doubles, 10 RBIs, and posted a 1.188 slugging percentage.
