Junior Josh Makler of the University of Redlands baseball team has been named to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week for throwing a no-hitter against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps in a Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) showdown on Saturday.
In his 11th start of the season, the Portland, Ore. native threw a complete-game, no-hitter to become the first individual in at least 15 years of Bulldog baseball history to accomplish this feat.
He joins the trio of Kyle Hart, Casey Miller, and Brock Jacobo that went seven innings while not allowing a hit or walk in 2011 en route to a 12-0 win over Caltech.
Against the Stags, Makler registered a career-high 11 strikeouts and faced 34 batters in his SCIAC-leading seventh win of the season.
University of Redlands senior forward Brittany Oster is this week’s SCIAC Female Athlete of the Week for February 3-9.
She helped Redlands avenge an earlier loss to La Verne with 25 points, 16 rebounds in the 68-48 victory. She also dished out four assists, made one block, and nabbed one steal.
In Saturday‘s match-up with Occidental, Oster notched her 12th double-double of the season, this time scoring 24 points and puling in 13 boards. She also offered one assist and one steal in the 14-point triumph over the Tigers.
For Oster, the award marks the second time this season she has received SCIAC Athlete of the Week laurels.
Freshman swimmer Matt Williams of Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Colleges garnered the SCIAC Male Athlete of the Week honor.
University of Redlands junior shortstop Jordan Dresner has earned 2014 Preseason All-America Honorable-Mention recognition from D3Baseball.com.
Dresner, a Los Osos High School graduate, scored a team-best 42 runs during last year’s run to the inaugural SCIAC Postseason Tournament.
He hit .389, racking up 58 hits to rank second on the team in the category, while raking eight doubles and four triples in the process. Additionally, Dresner notched 21 RBI on the year to go along with an on-base percentage of .457 and a slugging percentage of .497.
For his efforts, D3baseball.com honored Dresner with a Third-Team All-Region plaudit. He also garnered American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Second-Team All-Region honors and First-Team All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) laurels.
