Athletes of the Week | April 21-26

The Warriors pitcher/slugger had a huge week to help the Warriors sweep Jackson. On Tuesday, Budnick scored the game-winning run and went 4-for-5 in a 5-4 win over the Timberwolves. The next day, the senior hit a go-ahead two-run home run in a 4-2 win and then backed that up with a great performance on the mound at the plate in a 10-3 win on Friday. Budnick tossed six strong innings and struck out eight and was 2-for-3 with two doubles and four RBI in the victory.
