Four area athletes were named all-conference last week for their universities, while others have begun or are getting ready for postseason competition.
Senior third baseman Lewa Day (Armijo) was named first-team, all-Big Sky Conference for the second straight season in softball. Day hit .328 this season and hit 10 of the Hornets’ 19 home runs this season.
Day is Sac State’s all-time leader in home runs with 46, and has another year of eligibility ahead to build on it. Day is also just 20 RBIs short of being the Hornets’ all-time leader in that department as well.
