Sophomore Missy Penna (Miami, Fla./Southwest) of the Stanford softball team was selected as the Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for May 14-20.

Penna led her team both offensively and defensively at NCAA Regionals this weekend. The Miami, Fla. native pitched 26 innings for the Cardinal and shutout two opponents while striking out 32 batters. Penna's top performance came on Friday, when she shutout Cal State Northidge and Fresno State in back-to-back games of a doubleheader and struck out 19. On offense, Penna went 4-for-10 (.400) on the weekend with two doubles, and scored the game-winning run in the team's 1-0 win over Fresno State. For her efforts, she was selected to the Stanford Regional All-Tournament Team.

This is Penna's first Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor. Penna and the Cardinal softball team finished the 2007 season on Saturday with a 35-21-1 overall record.
