BOCA RATON, Fla. - Florida Atlantic University has tabbed Emily Lochten of the softball team and Ricky Hendler of the men's golf team as Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of April 30.

Lochten, the Conference USA Preseason Player of the Year, went out with a bang in the final home games of her career.

In the nightcap, she went 3-for-4 with three stolen bases, three runs and two RBI while helping the Owls rally from a six run deficit to win 13-12 in eight innings. On Sunday, Lochten added two more doubles, scored twice and drove in a run in a 6-1 FAU victory. For the weekend, Lochten hit .750 with a .786 on-base percentage and slugged 1.167 while helping the Owls sweep the Hilltoppers and increasing her school record totals in career doubles (54) and stolen bases (122).

Hendler was the top golfer for FAU last week at the Conference USA Championship in Texarkana, Arkansas. He finished the week shooting 229, tying him in 44th place overall. He shot 71 for the second day of the tournament.

Lochten and the softball team will travel to UTSA to close out the regular season. They take on the Roadrunners on Saturday (2:00 and 4:00 p.m.) and Sunday (2:00 p.m.).
