BERKELEY --  Cal senior Nisa Ontiveros enjoyed the finest week of her collegiate career as she earned the win in the Bears’ first four games and turned in a gritty performance in the series finale against Stanford. She began the week by setting a career-high in strikeouts with 12 against UC Davis, then came back in later that day to record the final out of an eventual 5-4 win over the Aggies. She only got better from there, setting her career high in strikeouts again in Friday’s win over Stanford with 13 in a two-hit, one-run performance. Her best moment came Saturday when she took the ball for the second consecutive day and struck out 16 Cardinal hitters to finish the game with the most strikeouts in a single game by any Pac-12 pitcher this season. In the win, eight of the first nine outs she recorded came via strikeout and she allowed just one hit. On Sunday, Ontiveros again started and left with the lead in the sixth inning, eventually taking a no-decision in Cal’s series-ending victory. She struck out 48 in the week and finished with a 1.33 ERA to finish the week with a Pac-12 best season ERA of 1.59 This is softball's second Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week nod after teammate Jazmyn Jackson earned the honor during the week of April 18.
