(VCSU Athletics) Valley City State senior third base Brittany Lehner shares North Star Athletic Association Co-Player of the Week honors with Dakota State freshman shortstop Samantha Mitchell

Valley City State senior third base Brittany Lehner is the North Star Athletic Association Co-Player of the Week after recording at least two hits in five of eight games as the Vikings went 6-2 between April 8 and April 14.

Lehner, a 5-foot-11-inch Watertown, S.D. native, hit three home runs in a span of three games, including two game-changing shots in late innings, to help the Vikings to a four-game series sweep at Presentation College.

For the week, Lehner batted 11-for-23 (.478), added three home runs and recorded a slugging percentage of .870. Lehner scored four times, produced eight RBIs against Presentation and registered an on-base percentage of .520.

Dakota State freshman shortstop Samantha Mitchell, a 5-foot-2-inch Buckley, Wash. native, claimed the other half of the honors after batting a perfect 4-for-4 twice, once against Mayville State and again against Mount Marty, as the Trojans picked up three wins in the week. In a 13-10 thriller over Mayville on April 7, Mitchell hit for the cycle and batted in four runs. Mitchell batted 12-for-27 (.444) with eight runs scored and produced nine RBIs for the week. She produced six extra-base hits (two home runs, three triples and a double) and recorded a slugging percentage of .926. Mitchell stole five bases in five attempts.
