Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week (Feb. 11-17)
Austin Roberts was selected as the Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week after throwing seven innings of one-run ball in the Hornets' 8-3 win over North Dakota State on Sunday. Roberts struck out 13 - one shy of tying the single game record - and scattered six hits and two walks over his seven innings of work.
The West Sacramento native threw 106 total pitches in the outing, 80 of them (75.5%) for strikes. He allowed one run in the second inning before finishing the outing with five scorless frames and struck out the side in two different innings. After the first weekend of the season, Roberts leads the Western Athletic Conference in strikeouts and his 1.29 ERA is one of the best in the league.
Sacramento State went 2-1 over their opening weekend series, sweeping both ends of a Sunday doubleheader. The Hornets have now won or split six straight season-opening series, including five against Power 5 programs.
