WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita State sophomore shortstop Sydney McKinney has been named the American Athletic Conference Player of the Week after a stellar weekend in helping Wichita State secure a series win over ECU.

She had multiple hits in all four games, including a 3-for-3 day with a career-high four runs scored in the opener to help the Shockers run-rule the Pirates, 16-2. McKinney finished the weekend with a leadoff home run to help set the tone in Wichita State’s 10-2 win on Sunday.

Wichita State travels to Memphis to face the Tigers for its first conference road series of the season, April 1-3.
