The California Pacific Conference has named the Players of the Week in softball and baseball for the week of April 17, 2017.
SOFTBALL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Genifer Garbellini of La Sierra earned top player of the week honors as she played a key role in keeping the Golden Eagles' postseason hopes alive. Competing for the fourth and final slot in the Cal Pac tournament, Garbellini had a productive weekend to help LSU stay within a game of fourth-place Embry-Riddle. The junior second baseman from Los Angeles, Calif., went 13-for-21 in six games last week (.619 average), and powered out six doubles. She drove in seven runs and scored four times.

SOFTBALL PITCHER OF THE WEEK
It is an outside shot, but Antelope Valley's Ashley Adkins played a pivotal role in giving the Pioneers any shot at all for the postseason tournament by picking up two important victories last week. Adkins, a freshman from Lincoln, Calif., beat La Sierra in back-to-back complete games, keeping UAV a game behind LSU and two in back of Embry-Riddle, currently in fourth place. Adkins allowed a lot of hits (33) in her 21 innings of work last week, but she surrendered only eight earned runs in three games.
Carly Carlsen (Embry-Riddle)
BASEBALL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
With his team battling for the final playoff spot in the Cal Pac Championships next month, La Sierra's Matt Majher guided the Golden Eagles to a sweep over visiting Providence Christian last week. He had five hits in the three wins, including two doubles and a triple, and drove in three runs while scoring four times. The junior third baseman from Corona, Calif., also had three walks, putting him on base eight out of 13 trips to the plate.

BASEBALL PITCHER OF THE WEEK
In a critical match-up with Benedictine-Mesa, Antelope Valley pitcher Dallas Litscher turned in the performance of the week by shutting down the Redhawks in the first game of a pivotal doubleheader in Mesa, Ariz. Litscher, a junior from Glendale, Ariz., tossed seven innings while allowing only three hits and striking out five. The road win gave the Pioneers, tied with BenU and Marymount California for first in the conference standings, their only one win in the three-game set against the Redhawks.
