Marymount California designated hitter and pitcher, Mary Gonzales was name the California Pacific Conference Player of the Week in softball for the week of April 10, 2017.
Gonzales helped the Mariners accomplish something that had not been done in program history: MCU won back-to-back games in a doubleheader against Antelope Valley, and the Mariners did it again the next day by completing a four-game sweep of the Pioneers. Gonzales played a key role in the four wins, going 9-for-14 at the plate, driving in six runs, scoring six times, and pounding out two doubles and a triple. The senior from Wilmington, Calif., was not done there, as she picked up two wins in the circle. Gonzales tossed a six-hit victory in the second game on Saturday, and a second six-hitter the next day.
