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.
