Sheila Holguin Named Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I Player of the Week

Cal State Fullerton sophomore outfielder Sheila Holguin (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.) has been named the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I Player of the Week for the week ending March 23, it was announced on Tuesday. 

Holguin (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif./Rancho Cucamonga HS) was a powerful cog in the Titans' offensive wheel at the top of the lineup at last week's Judi Garman Classic, leading the entire tournament in batting (.692), slugging (1.077), on-base percentage (.692), and triples (2) while also tying for the tournament lead in hits (9) and finishing tied for second in total bases (14). 

Hitting just .247 entering the tournament, Holguin raised her average almost 60 points to .306 to rank second on the team. She had her two best games against ranked opposition, going 3-for-4 against No. 19 Fresno State with a double, a run scored, and an RBI while finishing 3-for-3 against No. 7 Arizona, including driving home the winning run with a triple and scoring what would eventually be the decisive run later in the third inning.
