SCHLOREDT RECEIVES SIXTH CAREER PCSC PLAYER OF THE WEEK AWARD
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- For the first time this season and sixth time of her career, Sacramento State senior catcher Jamie Schloredt was named the Pacific Coast Softball Conference (PCSC) Player of the Week after leading the Hornets to a 2-2 record at last week’s Capital Classic.
The Woodland, Calif., native hit safely in all four games last week while batting .545 (6-for-11) with three runs, two walks, a home run and team-best seven RBIs. Schloredt slugged .818, had an on-base percentage of .571, hit .625 with runners in scoring position (5-for-8) and improved her hitting streak to seven games. Defensively, she picked off two runners on the base paths, and threw out four of the seven runners attempting to steal a base.
The award marks the second time in as many weeks a Sacramento State player has received conference player of the week honors, as senior Izmena Cabrera received the award last week. Schloredt has now received the honor six times during her three-plus seasons in the Green and Gold, including three times last year and twice in 2007.
Schloredt had at least one RBI in three of the four games last week, including a 2-for-3 performance against UNLV where she scored two runs, walked once, had a homer and four RBIs. She also went 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and an RBI against Colorado State, 1-for-2 with a walk against BYU and 2-for-3 with two RBIs against Dartmouth.
Schloredt, who raised her season batting average to its current mark of .321, has now hit safely in seven straight games (three shy of her career high). During that seven-game stretch, she is batting .591 (13-for-22) with a double, two home runs and 11 RBIs.
A three-time first team all-PCSC selection, including the conference’s player of the year last season, Schloredt was drafted in the third round of the National Pro Fastpitch Senior Draft last month by the Chicago Bandits.
Sacramento State (11-17) plays just once over the next week, and that game will be played today (March 24) at home against 12th-ranked Cal at 2 p.m.
