Johnson, a freshman from Lake Crystal, Minn., tossed 20 innings allowing just 10 hits with a 1.40 earned run average and 35 strikeouts in two league wins last week.
After pitching a one-hitter earlier in the week against South Dakota, Johnson earned her eighth shutout of the season against UMKC, allowing just one hit in that contest as well.
In her three starts last week, Johnson recorded 12, 11 and 12 strikeouts giving her 11 double-figure strikeout games this season.
