GS Alum Brianna Knight PCSC Coastal Division Player of the Week

Way to go Brianna. She spent 3 years in the GS program. She also played for Phil Mumma’s Sorcerer Softball. She was one of the first athletes we had out of the Rodriguez High (Fairfield) program. She has since been followed by Cheynne Cordes (CAL) , Kiara Garcia (Oregon State) and Marissa Esalante (UC Riverside).

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – In the wake of a four-homerun weekend, including two homers in the same inning, which allowed Santa Clara a series split over league-favorites LMU, Bronco senior outfielder Briana Knight (Fairfield, Calif./Angelo Rodriguez HS) was named the Pacific Coast Softball Conference Coastal Division Player of the Week.

Knight – twice a PCSC All-Coastal Division First Team player – hit four homeruns during the weekend series in Los Angeles and powered SCU to a stunning seven-run comeback victory over LMU Sunday afternoon 9-7. Knight hit the go-ahead three-run drive, which capped off the rally, after belting a two-run shot earlier in the inning.

Knight went 5 for 15 during five games last week (four with LMU and one against No. 13 Stanford – all on the road). She was 5 for 12 with eight RBI against LMU, helping SCU get off to a 2-2 start in league play.

Next up for Santa Clara is a four-game PCSC series at Sacramento State Friday and Saturday, April 6-7.
