Baseball's Nick Melino has been named the Nevada Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of March 29-April 4.
Melino hit .500 (6-for-12) with 4 runs scored, 2 home runs and 4 RBI starting all 3 games in left field as the Pack won 2 of 3 games from Utah Valley. He had game winning hits in both of the Pack victories in the series. In Friday’s game his 2 run homer in the bottom of the 5th inning put the Pack on top 5-4 which was the final score. On Sunday his second hit of the game drove in the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Wolf Pack an 8-7 extra inning come from behind victory. He had two hits in each game of the series and drove in at least one run in each game. In the first two games of the series he hit home runs. For the weekend his on base percentage was .600 and boasted a slug- ging percentage of 1.000. He has also hit safely in the last 8 games which ties his career best hit streak.
