Northwestern Mutual Student-Athlete of the Week, April 14-20

Junior pitcher Caitlin Brooks helped lead the softball team to a three-game sweep of Portland State. In two starts, the right-hander went 2-0 with a 1.00 ERA, allowing just six hits, two earned runs and two walks while striking out 22 batters in 14.0 innings of work. Portland State hit just .122 against Brooks, and she averaged 11 strikeouts per appearance. For her efforts, she was named the Big Sky Conference Pitcher of the Week for the third time this season, and eighth time of her career. On Friday, she carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning before giving up a one-out single, and on Saturday, she took a perfect game into the fifth inning before allowing a one-out single. In Friday’s 5-2 victory, the Escalon, Calif., native allowed just two hits and two unearned runs while walking one and striking out a career-high 13 batters. In Saturday’s 3-2 win, Brooks allowed just four hits and two runs over seven innings while walking one and striking out nine. She threw 104 pitches, and retired the first 13 batters of the game before allowing a single to left field.
