Federated Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athletes of the Week, April 24-30

Senior pitcher Taylor Tessier is this week’s Federated Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week after helping the softball team to a three-game home sweep of Northern Colorado. The right-hander made two appearances, going 1-0 with a 0.58 ERA. In two starts, Tessier allowed only six hits and one earned run while striking out 18 batters in 12.0 innings of work. Northern Colorado hit just .136 off Tessier and she allowed two extra base hits in those 12 innings.

In Friday’s 3-2 win, Tessier threw a complete game, allowing five hits and one earned run with 10 strikeouts in seven innings of work. She returned on Saturday to help the Hornets to a 6-2 victory. In that game, she took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, and finished the game throwing five innings while allowing one hit and no earned runs with eight strikeouts.

In 24 starts this season, Tessier has struck out 120 batters in 113.0 innings of work. That breaks down to a team-high 7.4 strikeouts per seven innings pitched.
