Gerboles-Parrilla and Call Are Latest FAU "Student-Athletes of the Week"

May 2, 2012

Florida Atlantic University has named men’s golfer Pablo Gerboles-Parrilla and Stephanie Call of softball as the latest FAU “Student-Athletes of the Week.”

At the 2012 Sun Belt Conference Championships, Gerboles-Parrilla was just a stroke outside of the top 10, topping the FAU squad with a 12th-place finish. His round scores included a 1-over-par 73 first day, and the Owls’ lowest mark of the tournament, a par-72 second round that included seven birdies. The freshman native of Leon, Spain, finished third on the team of those that competed in more than five tournaments this season, with a scoring average of 76.14.

For the second time this season, Call receives this weekly honor. She recorded hits in all five of FAU’s games this week, including four games with multiple hits, and returned to the pitching circle with two successful outings. On April 24, Call pitched four scoreless innings against ULM in her first pitching appearance since very early in the season. Hitting-wise, in that night’s doubleheader, she was a combined 4-for-7, including her first triple of the season, and then the following night, was 3-for-4 with a home run. On April 28, in a doubleheader at home against Middle Tennessee State University, she went 3-for-4 with a home run and a double, had four RBI’s and scored three runs. Call was also the winning pitcher in FAU’s 9-1 first-game win, throwing a complete game six-hitter.

Softball wraps up regular season play with a home-and-home against FIU this weekend. On Friday, May 4, they host the Panthers at the FAU Softball Stadium at 6 p.m., and then travel to Miami the following night for another 6 p.m. first pitch.

The Sun Belt Conference-leading baseball squad is the only other FAU squad in action this week, and they have a three-game homestand at the FAU Baseball Stadium against Western Kentucky University. The Friday, May 4 game time is 6:30 p.m., then it’s a 4 p.m. start on Saturday, May 5, before wrapping the series up on Sunday, May 6 at 1 p.m.
