Santa Clara Scholar-Athletes of the Week (February 11-17)

Sydney Wiginton and Grant Feichtmeir were named Santa Clara's Scholar-Athletes of the Week.

Sydney Wiginton

The senior from the Fresno, Calif., is the spark that gets the Broncos going. She is currently batting .321 (9-for28) from the leadoff spot in the lineup, and is a perfect 5-for-5 in stolen base attempts. She has helped the Broncos to a 5-4 start to begin the 2002 season, including a 3-2 mark at the Mustang Roundup Tournament hosted by Cal Poly over the weekend. At the tournament she went 5-for-15 overall, helping Santa Clara to victories over Colorado State, Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara. Wiginton has also excelled off the field as well, earning a 3.33 GPA for the Fall Quarter in Communications.

Grant Feichtmeir

The senior from nearby Mountain View, Calif., has gotten off to a tremendous start for the Broncos out of the bullpen. In his two appearances on the season thus far, he has not allowed a run and has only given up two hits in 4 1/3 innings of work on the mound. In his last outing against UC Santa Barbara, he threw the final 2 1/3 innings in which he allowed only one hit to pick up his first save of the season in Santa Clara's 12-6 victory over the Guachos. His first outing was just as successful as he pitched the final two innings to secure the Bronco's 8-4 win over No. 11 Fresno State. Feichtmeir has also excelled off the diamond, earning a 3.0 GPA in Marketing during the Fall Quarter.
