MORAGA, Calif. -- Junior pitcher Martin Agosta and senior golfer Anders Engell have been named Saint Mary's co-Student-Athletes of the Week following their exceptional performances last week.

Engell, a native of Oslo, Norway, fired three-straight rounds under-par to finish in a tie for second-place overall in the 108-player field at the Barona Collegiate Cup in Lakeside, Calif. last week.  He opened the tournament with a career-low 8-under par 64 then followed with rounds of 70-71 to finish at 11-under par for the event.

Seven of Engell's 18 rounds this season have been under par and he has a pair of top-5 finishes to his credit.  He and his teammates are currently competing in The Duck Invitational at Eugene (Ore.) Country Club today and tomorrow.

A native of Sacramento, Agosta threw his third career complete game, and first of the season, in Sunday's series clinching win over Cal State Northridge.  In 103 pitches, Agosta scattered three hits, one unearned run, with no walks, while striking out six to improve to 4-0 on the year.

After the Matadors scored a run in the top of the fifth with one out, Agosta shut down Cal State Northridge retiring 14 hitters in a row from the top of the fifth inning to the games completion.  He held Northridge to a .107 batting average. 

With the win, Agosta now has 14 in his career which put him in a tie for 10th place all-time at Saint Mary's.  For the year, he is 4-0 with a 1.60 ERA.  In 45.0 innings pitched, he has allowed only 30 hits, 11 runs, eight earned, with 10 walks, while striking out 38.  As of last week, Agosta ranked in the top-100 in the nation in wins and strike outs.
