MADISON, Wis. (WXOW) Michelle Mueller is at it again. The La Crosse Logan graduate is determined to leave her mark on the Badgers softball program.
On Monday, she was named the Big Ten's Player Of The Week. It's the second time she's won the award this season.
She's one of the top power hitters in the Big Ten. She's second in the league with 49 runs batted in. Mueller didn't get to play her senior year at Logan, after suffering a torn ACL. So you can see why she's taking advantage in her final year at Wisconsin.
"Having a coaching staff that really believes in me and really just having a lot of teammates that want the bat in my hands and knowing that I take it to heart and it gives me the extra confidence. You know I never had a senior year in high school so it means a lot to have one right now," Mueller said.
"She's a strong kid who has been battling injury and I think she's just playing loose. I think she's knows she's up against it and she's faced so much adversity that she's taken it in stride and its made her a great player," said Badgers head coach Yvette Healy.
Wisconsin has won 13 in a row, matching the longest winning streak in school history.
