This is Boyd's fourth career conference weekly honor and ASU's 69th.
Boyd hit her second grand slam of the season, this time against No. 11 Washington to help ASU to a sweep - the team's fourth sweep in conference play. She went 2-for-3 with a grand slam in game one, also tallying six RBI and two homers in the game.
In game two of the series, she hit 3-for-4 at the plate and had a double in the series finale. Boyd finished the weekend with a team-best .545 and 1.273 slugging percentage with a .615 on-base percentage.
Her two doubles on the week move her two closer (52, 2nd place) to the top of the ASU career record held by Kaitlin Cochran's 54. She is now also the all-time leader in program history for RBI with 232, which she surpassed on Friday night with her grand slam.
On the year she leads the team in hits (59), homers (19), slugging percentage (.977), on-base percentage (.581) and runs scored (61). Her 19 homers is a season-best for the senior.
