SAN BRUNO, Calif. — Gaels' junior Maddie Gallagher has been named the West Coast Conference Player of the Week after a big weekend at the plate in San Jose.
Gallagher went 8-for-12 across four games at the Silicon Valley Classic to power the Saint Mary's offense. She also was hit by pitches three times to bring her on-base percentage up to .733 in the tournament and drove in three RBIs. On Friday versus Utah State, Gallagher went 3-for-4 with a run batted in for her second three hit game this year.
The junior college transfer has been a shot in the arm to head coach Sonja Garnett's lineup as she now leads the team in batting average (.
