Boca Raton, FL -
Upperclassmen, Alex Hudak of the baseball team and Ashlyn Parmerter of the softball team have set good examples for their teammates with their accomplishments this week. For their strong performances Hudak and Parmerter have been selected as the Florida Atlantic University's Student Athlete of the Week. This is the first time both Hudak and Parmerter have been awarded this honor.
Hudak was instrumental in Florida Atlantic winning all five games last week, including a three-game series sweep this weekend over Monmouth. The junior had a .533 batting average (8-of-15) in the five contests, scored five runs and drove in seven runs. The outfielder had three RBIs in Saturday and Sunday's victories over the Hawks. Hudak connected on his first career home run on Saturday. The junior college transfer recorded a .933 slugging percentage and legged out the team's only triple on the season. He leads the team with an impressive .475 batting average.
Meanwhile, Parmerter gave a flawless performance on the softball field to help the Owls to a 3-1 record over the weekend beating: Harvard, Stony Brook and Seton Hall. The third baseman saw a lot of action as she had 14 opportunities and committed no errors in all three days. On the season, Parmerter has a .964 fielding percentage. The senior also aided in clinching an 11-3 victory over Seton Hall University with a two-RBI single, and ended the tournament with a .667 batting average (4-of-6). Parmerter leads the team with 31 assists and three fielding double plays on the season.
