Gilmore Earns Pac-12 Player of the Week Honors
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Junior Dani Gilmore has been named Pac-12 Conference Player of the Week, the conference office announced Monday.
Gilmore helped the Beavers close out their season with a pair of victories, as Oregon State took its first series win over Stanford since 2007. Gilmore’s weekend was highlighted by a grand slam on Friday, as part of a 2-for-3, five RBI performance. She then followed that up by going 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI on Saturday. Overall, Gilmore hit .500 over the course of the week, with an .800 slugging percentage.
This is the first Pac-12 weekly honor of Gilmore’s career. The West Hills, Calif. native has reached a number of milestones in her first three seasons as a Beaver. She ended the 2014 season with a .407 batting average, good for fourth in school history. She also sits fourth on Oregon State’s career runs scored list (124), fifth on OSU’s career batting average list (.336), second on Oregon State’s walks list (98) and is tied for eighth in home runs (25).
