Scots' Seiler Named MWC Softball Position Performer of Week
Monmouth College sophomore Morgan Seiler has been nearly automatic at the plate this season and has been named the Midwest Conference Position Performer of the Week in softball.

Seiler, a Chillicothe native, leads the Fighting Scots in three offensive categories and is tied for the lead in another.

The slugging shortstop leads the squad with a whopping .525 average on 21-of-40 hitting and a .725 slugging percentage and has driven in a team-high 12 runs. Her 10 runs scored also ties her for the team lead.

Seiler's solid bat was never more evident than in Monmouth's 4-3 come-from-behind win over Robert Morris-Springfield last Saturday. Trailing by a run with two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Seiler needed a base hit to tie the game, but she did one better, doubling in two runs for the walk-off win.

Seiler gave a preview of things to come during Monmouth's spring trip to Arizona. She connected for her first career grand slam in a game against Aquinas College (Mich.). She is riding a seven-game hitting streak that includes three straight three-hit games. Seiler has multiple hits in seven of her 12 games this season.
