MORAGA, Calif. - Saint Mary's senior shortstop Rebecca Sabatini has been named this week's SMC Student-Athlete of the Week after a tremendous week at the plate against No. 1 California and CSU Bakersfield.
In five games last week, the Livermore, Calif. native hit .778 (14-for-18), including two doubles, a home run, six RBI and seven runs scored to give her a 1.056 slugging percentage. The senior also earned two walks to give her an .800 on base percentage.
Sabatini was solid at the plate in every game of the week, with three hits in the first four games and two in the final game of the week.
She started the week with a 3-for-3 day against No. 1 California, hitting three singles against the two Cal aces.
Sabatini was 3-for-4 in each of the first two games of the Bakersfield series, and then went 3-for-3 with a home run in game three. In the final game of the series, the senior went 2-for-4 with a double to finish off her spectacular week.
Saint Mary's will return to action this weekend with another PCSC road series against Santa Clara. The Gaels and Broncos will play doubleheaders on Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22.
