Federated Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week, April 2-8

Senior pitcher Celina Matthias is this week’s Federated Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week after helping lead the Hornets to a three-game series sweep of Portland State. She went 2-0 with a save and a 0.44 ERA while pitching in all three games of the series. Portland State hit just .115 against Matthias who struck out 19 batters while allowing just six hits and one run in 16.0 innings. In addition, she allowed one walk over those 16.0 innings and threw complete games in both victories.

In the Hornets’ 1-0 extra inning victory on Thursday, Matthias tossed a two-hit shutout, walking none and striking out nine batters over eight innings. She followed up that effort in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader, allowing just three hits and one run in a 4-1 win over the Vikings. In Saturday’s 4-2 nightcap victory, Matthias entered the game as a reliever in the seventh inning and nailed down the save.

For her efforts, she was also named the Big Sky Conference Pitcher of the Week. In addition, Saturday’s win allowed her to earn her 50th career victory. She becomes just the third Hornet pitcher during the program’s Div. I era (1990-pres.) to win 50 career games.
