California Lutheran's Kendall Marinesi was named the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Hitter of the Week as announced by the organization on Wednesday.
Marinesi, the reigning Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Softball Hitter of the Week, was named the NFCA Hitter of the Week after her impressive performance over six games last week.
Marinesi paced the Regals to a 3-3 week that saw them post wins of 5-1 and 16-10 over Hiram, and earn a split with Whittier, (including a 7-6 win). They fell to the Poets, 12-7, and lost a double-header with Manhattanville (7-3, 12-7). Marinesi was superb at the plate accounting for 40% of Cal Lutheran's offensive production. She was 13-for-23 (.565) with nine runs scored, four doubles, two triples, five homers, and 18 RBI.
