Alexis Martinez, Softball

Northwestern Mutual Student-Athlete of the Week, April 7-13

In four games, redshirt freshman Alexis Martinez hit .385 (5-for-13) with two home runs, eight RBIs and an .846 slugging percentage. The four-game stretch included wins over Idaho State and Pacific, and saw Martinez record at least one RBI in each contest. The third baseman began the week by going 1-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs in the team’s win at Pacific before going 2-for-4 with a run, homer and three RBIs in Friday’s win against Idaho State. On Saturday, she added a two-run homer in the sixth inning against Idaho State that gave the Hornets a 2-1 lead. The home runs were the first of the year for Martinez, who has come back strong after a knee injury limited her to just seven games last season. As of April 15, in conference play, she is batting .400 with a team-high tying 10 RBIs in 11 games.
