Teaghan Cowles was named the Pac-12 Softball Freshman of the Week, it was announced Tuesday by the conference.

Cowles had an outstanding debut weekend in six games at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Arizona. She hit .619 (13-for-21) on the weekend with seven RBIs, seven runs, two stolen bases and a triple. Cowles' 13 hits is the most among Pac-12 players.

Cowles had at least one hit in every game, including multi-hit performances in four of the six games. She scored at least one run in five of the six contests.

Cowles scored the game-winning run in a 3-2 seventh-inning comeback against Western Michigan. Trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the seventh, she hit a one-out single to load the bases then rounded the bases to score the winning run.

Cowles went 4-for-5 against Purdue, tying her for the fifth-most hits in a single game by a Stanford player in program history. Her four hit effort helped Stanford generate 21 hits in the game, the most in a single game in over 10 years.

It is the first conference award for a Stanford since Kayla Bonstrom was named the Player of the Week on May 13, 2013, and the 55th conference award in Cardinal history.
