WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Senior Bryan Williamson, an outfielder on the Washington baseball team, has been named the Pacific- 10 Conference Baseball Player of the Week, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Last week, Williamson, from Kennewick, Wash. (Kamiakin HS), led the Huskies to the UNLV/Coors Desert Classic Championship by batting .560 (14-for-26) over five games. Williamson also tallied two doubles, a home run, seven runs batted in and nine runs. He collected three hits in four of the five games, and had two in the other.
Williamson entered last week batting only .200 (4-for-20) on the year, but raised his average to .400 with the strong weekend performance.
The award marks the first time that a Husky has been named the Pac-10 Player of the Week since the conference got rid of division play this season. Williamson, also a relief pitcher was named the Pac-10 North Player of the Week once in 1997 and was the Pitcher of the Week twice that season.
Stanford's Jason Young won the Pitcher of the Week award this week after striking out 10 in a non- conference victory over USC.
