The Western Athletic Conference office named junior catcher Zac Fisher the Verizon Western Athletic Conference Hitter of the Week for his play during the week of April 2-8. This is Fisher's first hitter of the week honor this year and the second of his career.
Fisher, a junior from Fontana, Calif. (A.B. Miller HS), hit .375 (6-for-16) with three runs scored, a home run, three RBI and three walks as the Aggies went 3-1 on the week. Fisher, who leads the WAC with 53 hits and 45 RBI on the year, brought in the tying run on a single through the right side as the Aggies came from behind to defeat Nevada 7-6 in the series finale to help NMSU win the three-game series. Fisher started the week going 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI against in-state rival New Mexico to lead the Aggies to a 7-5 win.
"Zac has been a key component of the teams success hitting over .400 with runners in scoring position," head coach Rocky Ward said.
According to BoydsWorld.com, Fisher is tied for third nationally in hits (53), and second in RBI (45), while he leads the WAC in both categories. He is hitting a team-high .384 (53-of-138) while leading the team to a 25-9 record on the year. Fisher has posted 11 doubles and four home runs while drawing 11 walks. Defensively, he has posted 218 putouts and 34 assists.
Fisher and the rest of the Aggies, who were ranked No. 25 by Baseball America this week and No. 23 by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, take on Sacramento State April 13-16 with three of the four games counted as league games.
