The Spring Hill College Department of Athletics has named Ryan Hall and Ersy Pacheco as its Athletes of the Week for their outstanding efforts during the week of March 29-April 4, 2010.
Hall, a senior right fielder from Ft. Myers, Fla., established a new total career hits record for Badger Baseball with a 7-hit performance in a doubleheader at Thomas University on Tuesday. Hall passed Tim Hilpert's (1995-98) record of 255 hits and currently stands at 261 hits in his career.
Pacheco, a junior right fielder from Venezuela, crushed a Grand Slam in the bottom of the 6th inning to lift the Badger softball team to a 6-3 victory over Columbia College (Mo.) on Monday afternoon. For the season, Pacheco is hitting .333 and leads the Badgers with five homers and 20 RBI. She has struck out just six times in 111 plate appearances.
