SAN BRUNO, Calif.-Brigham Young University junior infielder Gordy Bravo and Saint Mary's College sophomore pitcher Katie Moss have been respectively named the West Coast Conference Player and Pitcher of the Week in the sport of softball, the conference office announced Monday.

Last week, Bravo led the Cougars to an outright clinch of the West Coast Conference championship title for the second year in a row. The Corona, California, native hit .500 going 6-for-12 from the plate including a double, one RBI and two runs scored. She registered a .625 on-base percentage and drew four bases on balls in the four games while making several defensive plays in the outfield. Bravo helped BYU complete the doubleheader sweep of Santa Clara by going 1-for-2 while drawing two walks as the Cougars secured their 11th consecutive NCAA tournament berth. In the third game against the Broncos, she collected two hits to bring her season total to 70. Bravo collects here second weekly award, and the seventh overall Player of the Week honor for the Cougars.

Moss started all three games over the weekend that included two wins, two complete games and taking a perfect game into the seventh inning against San Diego. She was the tough luck losing pitcher in the first game of the series as the Gaels led 1-0 in the seventh inning as Moss retired the first 19-hitters she faced perfectly, going 19-up and 19-down before a walk and single with one out in the seventh. The Toreros would eventually rally to win the game in nine innings. Moss responded with two complete games as the Gaels won the series 2-1. For the week, the Cupertino, California native went 2-1 with a 1.54 ERA going 22.2 innings, allowing just 17 hits, walking three and striking out 18. She improves to 12-6 on the year. The right hand pitcher earns her second weekly award, as she garnered the honor on March 30.
