SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento State head softball coach Lori Perez announced the program's third signee of the 2018 recruiting class with the inking of Washington transfer Krystal Aubert, who will enroll as a junior at the University in the fall.
Aubert, a 5-foot-8 third baseman/utility player, is a local product from Orangevale. Prior to playing the 2015 and 2016 seasons at Washington, Aubert prepped at Casa Roble High School where she was a 2014 California Medium Schools all-state and first team all-Metro selection.
During her two season at Washington, Aubert played a combined 84 games, including 40 starts. An honorable mention all-Pac 12 Conference selection as a freshman, she combined to hit .260 over two years for the Huskies with seven homers (two grand slams), 27 RBIs, five stolen bases, a .481 slugging percentage and an .847 ops. In addition, she committed just two errors in 72 chances (.972 fielding percentage), primarily playing in the outfield.
Washington combined for an 81-32 overall record and a 27-19 mark in the Pac-12 during her two seasons, including an NCAA Super Regional appearance in 2016 and a Regional spot in 2015. As a freshman in 2015, Aubert played in 47 games, batting .294 (20-for-68) with five homers, 21 RBIs, 11 walks and a .395 on-base percentage. She was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week after batting .833 (5-for-6) with three homers and 10 RBIs in a series against Stanford. She did not play during the 2017 season.
"We believe Krystal will make an impact right away both offensively and defensively," Perez said. "She can play many different positions, hit for power and is well known in the Sacramento area. I think fans will be excited to see her back home and playing in the Green and Gold. She will be a great addition in our quest to win a Big Sky Conference championship."
A 2014 graduate of Casa Roble High School in Orangevale, Aubert was a two-time conference MVP and four-time first team all-league selection for the Rams. That included a monster senior season in which she batted .494 with 34 runs, 11 doubles, seven homers and 28 RBIs.
In four seasons at Casa Roble (101 games), she hit .463 with 118 runs, 25 doubles, eight triples, 22 homers, 41 stolen bases, 109 RBIs, a .539 on-base percentage, .822 slugging percentage and a massive 1.361 ops. She played club ball for the All American Sports Academy.
Aubert is the third player to sign with Sacramento State, joining Martin Luther King High School outfielder Charizma Guzman and Foothill High School pitcher Jessica Seely (story).
