Athletes of the Week
Spencer DuBois was the Cal Lutheran MVP during the 2014 NCAA Division III Baseball Regional hosted at Linfield. His extraordinary effort behind the plate, catching all 38 innings included four runners caught stealing and too many blocked dirt balls to count earned him recognition on the All-Tournament Team. DuBois produced a perfect fielding percentage with 28 putouts and nine assists. Additionally, he contributed at the plate with three hits, reaching base six times after being hit three times, for a team-leading on base percentage of .429. His lone RBI was a timely one, serving as the RBI that plated the winning run in game one against Illinois Wesleyan.
Women's Track & Field
The Cal Lutheran women’s 4x100m Relay team of Kendall Sauter, Lauren Rohach, Amanda Hamilton and Amy Galipeau used the Redlands Last Chance Qualifier to hit peak form entering the NCAA Division III Track & Field Championships by running a 47.45 to break their own Cal Lutheran record on Friday afternoon. The quartet returns to the national stage as the fifth fastest time in the country to date as they make a bid at a national title.
Capping off his collegiate career with a double, Jake Petersen played an instrumental role in the Kingsmen producing a 2-2 showing at the McMinnville Regional where he was named to the All-Tournament Team as a utility player. The senior southpaw got the Violet and Gold off to a hot start, earning a win on the hill after going 8.0 innings, allowing just a single run, scattering four hits and striking out six. At the plate, he cumulatively hit .353 with six hits while driving in three and scoring a trio of times. He provided one sacrifice fly during the weekend as well. Petersen pitched, played left field and served as the designated hitter during his final Cal Lutheran appearance.
