MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — The Commodores singing group had a hit record in 1978 with a chorus “You’re once, twice, three times a lady.”
The Rio Grande RedStorm may have to do their own version of the song for junior right-fielder Taylor Webb with the words, “You’re once, twice, three times the Player of the Week.”
The former Symmes Valley Lady Vikings’ All-Ohio standout earned her third River States Conference softball Player of the Week honors this season as she was honored for the period of April 26-May 2.
Webb hit a sizzling .560 as she went 14-for-25 with nine of her hits going for extra bases. She had six doubles and three home runs while scoring eight runs and driving in 14.
In a doubleheader sweep of rival Shawnee State, Webb was 5-for-7 with two doubles, two home runs and five RBI.
She had four hits including a home run and three RBI in a sweep of Carlow.
In the final series of the week, Webb had five hits including four doubles with six RBIs in a pair of wins over Point Park.
