Shafer Named PCAC Athlete of the Week
Knights' sophomore pitcher Hannah Shafer was selected by the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference as its Women's Athlete of the Week for the week ending on March 6.
Shafer followed up a perfect game nine days earlier with a no-hitter in a 9-1 win at Imperial Valley on March 2. Imperial Valley's lone run was unearned as the Knights' infielders committed three errors to allow that run. Shafer also helped her own cause by going 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI.
Last Friday, in a 2-0 loss at Grossmont that ended the Knights' four-game winning streak, Shafer came into the game in the fifth inning with one out and the bases loaded. On her first pitch, Shafer got the next Grossmont batter to line out into a double play. Shortstop Brittany Wright caught the line drive and threw to third base to get the lead runner.
So far this season, Shafer is 3-1 with an ERA of 1.40 in 25 innings of work.
