USF Athlete of the Week
Junior ace Derek Fischer (5-8) has been named USF Student-Athlete of the week following two critical wins against Winona State over the weekend.
Saturday night Fischer relieved Noah Coleman in the eighth inning of game two vs. WSU. He tossed the final three frames and was spectacular in long relief, holding the Warriors to one hit with one walk and struck out three to set the stage for a 5-4 walk-off victory for USF.
Fischer was equally brilliant in a must-win game one against WSU Sunday. He allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and walked three. The former Brandon Valley standout tossed 127 pitches and did everything but sell the hot dogs and popcorn, racking up a career-high 10 K’s in the complete game victory, his second win in as many days.
USF (20-24, 14-14) was fighting to keep its season going on Sunday afternoon at Winona State's Loughrey Field, but after posting a split with the Warriors, USF will play its next game in 2014.
