March 24, 1998

PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State's Jason Grove has been named the Pac-10 North player of the week after hitting at a .471 clip last week.

The freshman started four of the five games last week in right field and the fifth game on the mound. Grove was 8-for-17 with three doubles, three home runs, and six RBI. He also scored six runs. In his start on the mound against Gonzaga he gave up three runs in three innings of work.

For the year, Grove leads the Cougs at the plate with a .384 batting average and .740 slugging percentage. He leads the team with nine doubles and is second with five home runs. The player of the week honor is the first in Grove's short career.

Utility player Scott Randall also enjoyed a solid week at the plate. Randall was 13-for-22 with two home runs and a double. In the series finale against Cal Mar. 16, Randall was 5-for-7, including his first home run of the year.

The Cougs will travel to Spokane tomorrow to meet with Gonzaga at 2 p.m. They will return to Bailey Field Saturday to host a squad of former players for the annual Alumni game.
