Cal State East Bay softball player Sara Holdridge has been named the Worth/CCAA Player of the Week after helping the Pioneers open the conference season with a series victory over San Francisco State.
The Murrieta native finished the weekend batting .750 (6-for-8), driving in eight runs and scoring five thanks to three homeruns. Holdridge started every game, reaching base in 76.9 percent of her at-bats and slugging at a 1.875 clip. The junior drove in at least one run in three of the four games while posting a minimum of two RBI in each of the final three games of the series.Holdridge is the Pioneers' first softball player of the week this season and the second East Bay player to win player of the week honors during the 2011-12 academic year, joining men's basketball player Roshun Wynne, who was honored on Dec. 5, 2011.
The award marks the third for the softball team since Cal State East Bay began competing in the CCAA during the 2009-10 campaign.
Sara Holdridge hit .750, drove in eight runs and hit three homers to earn CCAA Player of the Week honors after East Bay's 3-1 series win over SF State last weekend.
Way to go, Sara!
