Landgrebe Named GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week

CORPUS CHRISTI – Kevin Landgrebe has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Landgrebe earns the award after helping the Islanders to a weekend sweep of Abilene Christian with a save and a win against the Wildcats.

Landgrebe has continued to be one of the go-to pitchers out of the bullpen for the Islanders, as he allowed just three hits on no earned runs in three appearances over 7 2/3 innings pitched this week.

The junior has now given up just three earned runs over the last 14 innings pitched, with all three runs coming in one game. Over that stretch, he has tallied four wins to now tie him for the team lead in wins with six.

In game two of the series against the Wildcats, Landgrebe came on in relief of starter Trevor Belicek in the seventh inning, and closed out the final three innings with no runs on one hit to record his first career save. He then came back in the series finale going 2 2/3 innings on the mound, allowing an unearned run on two hits to notch the victory.

The Islanders baseball team will close out its home schedule this weekend, as it hosts a three-game set with Lamar, starting Friday at 6 p.m.
