Jackie Sweet set the standard at second base for the Utah softball team. Utah's first ever Pac-12 Player of the Week will receive the Occie Evans Award as the University of Utah's top senior female athlete during the 2012-13 academic year.
Sweet will be honored during Utah's Homecoming football game against Oregon State on Sept. 14 at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
"We were so fortunate to have Sweet play second base for us the last three years," Utah softball coach Amy Hogue said. "She was a solid defender and turned some amazing double plays over the years. Her story is a great one, with her official visit being the same weekend as her move-in date three years ago. She committed to our program just hours before classes began for the fall semester and she ended up becoming the top female athlete at Utah as a senior. What a great story."
