SCHLOREDT RECEIVES SECOND PCSC PLAYER OF THE WEEK AWARD
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento State junior Jamie Schloredt was named the Pacific Coast Softball Conference (PCSC) Player of the Week today after leading the Hornets to a 3-1 record against Portland State last weekend.
Sacramento State moved ahead of Portland State in the PCSC standings, and now sit all alone in first place with three weeks remaining in the season.
Last week, Schloredt hit .714 (10-for-14) with six runs, three doubles, three home runs, 11 RBIs, two intentional walks and a 1.571 slugging percentage. The catcher was also flawless in the field with 14 putouts and one assist while allowing no Portland State runner to steal a base. In addition, the Woodland, Calif., native clubbed a home run in each of the final three games of the series.
Schloredt also earned the weekly honor earlier this season (Feb. 20), and today marks the fifth time a Sacramento State player has received PCSC Player or Pitcher of the Week honors. Pitchers Kayla Meeks (March 13) and Brittani Clifford (March 4), and second baseman Whitney Loomis (March 19) also earned the award. Schloredt has now received the honor five times during her three-year career (twice in 2007, once in 2006).
After Schloredt began the series by going 0-for-3 in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader with the Vikings, she was retired just once more during the final three games. In the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader, she went 3-for-4 with a run, home run and two RBIs.
In both games of Sunday’s doubleheader, she was never retired, finishing 7-for-7 with four runs, three doubles, two home runs, nine RBIs, two walks and a 2.286 slugging percentage. She had three hits and four RBIs in the first game, and followed up that effort with four hits and five RBIs in the nightcap.
Schloredt now has nine home runs this season, which is the new Sacramento State single-season record. Already the school’s career leader in home runs, RBIs and walks, Schloredt is batting .398 this year to go along with a .500 on-base percentage and a .735 slugging percentage. Her 25 walks are three shy of the school single-season record, a mark she set last season.
Sacramento State (24-15, 6-2) returns to action this weekend when the team plays a four-game series at Loyola Marymount (29-15, 4-4).
