This was a pretty good week for Fresno State on the field of competition, with several student athletes gaining recognition for their performances.
Bulldog baseball pitcher Tyler Linehan was named a National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball magazine.
The sophomore lefthander got the call in Fresno State's season opener Friday night and had a career game. Linehan threw seven and two thirds scoreless innings, giving up only five hits while striking out a career high 13.
He is only the third Bulldog in history to gain the award. But he was not the Western Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week. That honor goes to another Bulldog, Fresno State's Thomas Harlan.
A senior out of San Bruno, Harlan threw a complete game shutout against Butler on Saturday.
The lefthander scattered seven hits and struck out a career high eight in a 6-0 victory.
Fresno State's Mackenzie Oakes is the WAC's softball Pitcher of the Week. The senior out of Bakersfield was 2-0 in two starts with her third career no-hitter. That came in a win over Fullerton.
Oakes threw a two-hitter in her first start of the week, a shutout of Santa Clara.
She is 3-0 with an earned run average under one.
Fresno State also had the WAC Player of the Week in women's basketball, KiKi Moore.
And she's making it a habit. This is the fourth time this season.
The sophomore guard out of San Francisco averaged 17 1/2 points and 9 1/2 rebounds in wins over Idaho and Utah State.
Moore leads the WAC in steals and is second in scoring for the first place Bulldogs.
