The University of Houston-Victoria's Brittany Arredondo and Dakota State University's Seth Boomsma have earned top honors in the Association of Independent Institutions this week as Arredondo has been named Female Athlete of the Week, while Boomsma has been named the Male Athlete of the Week for the week of April 8-14.

 

Arredondo, a senior shortstop from Canyon, Texas, is currently on a UHV record 23-game hitting streak and compiled a .714 batting average for the week going 15-for-21. She finished the week going 8-for-8 in a doubleheader sweep  against Northwood (TX) that gave her head coach Keri Lambeth her 200th coaching win at UHV. Arredondo scored 11 runs,, had two RBI, a double, a .762 slugging percentage and a .750 on-base percentage in six games and helped extend the Jaguars' win streak to 10 games. She also drew two walks and stole two bases.

Boomsma, a sophomore from Crooks, S.D., blazed to a first-place finish in the 100 meters and ran a leg on the second-place 4x100 meter relay team at the Sioux City Relays. Having already qualified for the NAIA Nationals, Boomsma claimed the 100-meter title with a time of 10.77 seconds. He was also part of the 4x100-meter relay that came up just .04 seconds short of gold after clocking a 42.07 time in the event.
