SANTA CLARA, Calif. – On this week's edition of the Bronco Weekly Sports Wrap, hosts and student-athletes Denzel Johnson and Nici Gilday get you caught up on Bronco sports. Last week featured a number of championship events with five Bronco sports competing for titles. Additionally, Sunday marked a special event with the 10th anniversary of baseball's Stephen Schott Stadium. This episode begins with the Bronco baseball team.
The Broncos fell in a midweek game against Cal Poly. However, they rallied from a Friday night defeat against Gonzaga to take the final two games of the series.
Stadium namesake and former Bronco pitcher Stephen Schott '60 threw out the first pitch Sunday. Schott is a longtime supporter of Bronco baseball, and his $4 million pledge in 2004 served as a major component in the foundation of the team's state-of-the-art facility. Schott was inducted into the Santa Clara University athletics hall of fame in May 2014.
Check out highlights and a postgame interview with junior center fielder TC Florentine after Sunday's 6-5 win. Next up for Bronco Baseball is UC Davis Tuesday at home for a 6 p.m. first pitch. Next weekend, the Broncos head to Moraga for a three-game series with the Saint Mary's Gaels.
