Jimmy Bosco earned his award for his role in leading the Oaks' baseball team to a 4-0 record over Corban University. Bosco had seven hits on the weekend, including four home runs and a double. Alyssa Holland continued the Oaks' dominance of softball honors, marking the third consecutive week Menlo has won the award. Holland was 2-for-5 with a stolen base in the Oaks' doubleheader split with William Jessup. James Walsh of the Menlo College golf team also was honored. Walsh finished seventh in the Simpson University Invitational to earn Cal Pac Golfer of the week . . . The Menlo women's volleyball team has signed a number of players recently, the latest being Jamie Nurenberg.
