CLEVELAND - Kent State senior Jess Carmichael
(Dalton, Ohio/Dalton) was named Mid-American Conference East
Division Player of the Week Friday for her performance at the
Marshall Invitational. Carmichael has now won the conference
award in four straight seasons.
In three weekend games at Marshall, Carmichael launched three home runs, drove in nine and carried a 1.364 slugging percentage. She hit .455 with a double and three walks, netting an on-base percentage of .571.
