SCHLOREDT EARNS PCSC PLAYER OF THE WEEK AWARD FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS YEAR
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sophomore catcher Jamie Schloredt was named the Pacific Coast Softball Conference (PCSC) Player of the Week for the second time this season after leading the Hornet softball team to a 3-1 record against San Diego last weekend.
Schloredt, who also earned the league’s weekly award on Feb. 12, combined to hit .636 (7-11) with three doubles, two home runs, six RBIs, 16 total bases, two walks, a 1.455 slugging percentage and a .714 on-base percentage over the four games. The Woodland, Calif., native hit safely in all four games, and had multiple-hit games in three of those contests.
In the Hornets’ first game on Saturday, Schloredt went 2-for-2 with a double, walk and a sacrifice. She followed up that effort in Saturday’s nightcap by going 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs. On Sunday, Schloredt had a home run in both games, beginning the day by going 2-for-3 with a run, double, home run and three RBIs in the first game. In Sunday’s second game, Schloredt accounted for the Hornets’ only run when she hit a homer that flew over the scoreboard beyond the left-center field wall.
Schloredt continues to be the Hornets’ offensive catalyst, leading the team in batting average (.374), doubles (10), home runs (6), RBIs (27), total bases (79), slugging percentage (.603) and on-base percentage (.442). The catcher has yet to commit an error this season in 193 total chances behind the plate. In addition, Schloredt has thrown out 16 runners attempting to steal a base.
Sacramento State (17-32, 8-7 PCSC) enters its final week of the 2007 season. The Hornets finish with a four-game series at home against Saint Mary’s this weekend. The two teams will play doubleheaders on both Saturday and Sunday at noon. The Hornets need to win three of four games from the Gaels to assure themselves of finishing second in the conference standings. Loyola Marymount has already clinched the conference championship and will receive the league’s automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament.
After a rough first couple of months to the season, Sacramento State has turned it on lately, winning six of its last eight games and 11 of the last 19.
