Nora Sobczak, Left Field, 5-7 Senior, Thousand Oaks, CA (Westlake HS)

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- After hitting a Cal Poly-best .636 during a three-game May 5-6 series at UC Santa Barbara, Mustang softball senior left fielder Nora Sobczak has been named Coca-Cola/Cal Poly Student-Athlete of the Week.

During the May 5 series opener at Campus Diamond, Sobczak produced two of Cal Poly’s four hits in a 4-1 defeat. The Thousand Oaks, Calif., native returned during the opening game of the Saturday doubleheader to collect a career-high four hits in a 5-4, eight-inning defeat. Sobczak’s four hits were the highest single-game output by a Mustang in 2012.

The only Mustang to hit safely during each game in the series, Sobczak capped the weekend with a third-inning double in the May 6 series finale. Cal Poly, however, fell in six innings against the Gauchos, 8-0.

In addition to batting .636 (7-for-11) against the rival Gauchos, Sobczak paced Cal Poly in hits, total bases (eight), slugging percentage (.727) and on-base percentage (.636).

Sobczak, who raised her season average to .273 with the seven hits, also played an errorless left field.

Cal Poly (12-34, 4-14) wraps the 2012 regular season when hosting UC Riverside for a three-game May 11-12 series at Bob Janssen Field. Prior to Saturday’s 12 noon series finale, the Mustang program will honor Sobczak and fellow senior Nicole Lund for their four-year contributions to the program.
