Three Stars: Hill Helps Lead WSU to Weekend Sweep

YAKIMA, Wash. — Washington State swept a four-game series from Niagara over the weekend, and an incoming Pippins outfielder played a key role.

Brady Hill (Pippins 2020), a freshman, went 6-for-16 with a double and an RBI – including a 4-for-6 effort with three runs scored in the series opener Thursday. The strong weekend improved Hill’s batting average this year from .261 to .308 as the Cougars improved to 9-6 overall.

Cole Pofek (Pippins 2018) was 2-for-5 with four RBIs and a home run Sunday for Cal Riverside as the Highlanders took three of four games from Holy Cross over the weekend. Pofek finished 6-for-19 and hit safely in all four games.

Mark Woinarowicz (Pippins 2019) pitched a scoreless inning in three straight appearances Friday, Saturday and Sunday for Cal State East Bay against CSU Monterey Bay over the weekend. The junior struck out two in both his Saturday and Sunday stints, and is 2-1 with one save and a 2.25 ERA in nine games this spring.
