Katie Koepsel, Softball

University Books & More and the Wisconsin National Guard are pleased to announce that catcher Katie Koepsel (Jr. • Oak Creek) of the softball team has been chosen as the UW-Oshkosh Female Student-Athlete of the Week for April 7-13.

Koepsel tied the WIAC record with a three-home run game during UW-Oshkosh's doubleheader at UW-Platteville on April 9.

Koepsel finished the day hitting 6-for-8 with four home runs, two doubles, five runs scored and six runs batted in. She compiled a batting average of .750 and a slugging percentage of 2.500.

During the second game, Koepsel set a conference record with 14 total bases. She homered in her final three-at bats, marking solo shots in the fourth, sixth and seventh innings. Koepsel also tallied a run-scoring double in the first frame. The Titans won the contest, 14-7.

UW-Oshkosh took the opener by a 4-1 score. Koepsel smacked a solo home run in the fourth inning to give the Titans a 1-0 lead. Then during the sixth, she ripped a run-scoring double to take a 2-1 advantage.

Koepsel became the fourth player in WIAC history to hit three home runs in one contest. Amie Heinzelman last accomplished the feat for the Titans in 2008.

Each week throughout the 2013-14 school year, one male and one female UW-Oshkosh student-athlete are recognized for their accomplishments from the previous week. The award winners will be announced on the UW-Oshkosh athletics website every Monday afternoon.
