Jackson Hickert, Pirate Baseball, Week of Jan. 28-Feb. 3

The Ventura college baseball team racked up three wins this past week, including a 7-2 victory at Cerro Coso College in Ridgecrest on Friday. In that game, starting pitcher Jackson Hickert threw six solid innings, giving up two runs while limiting the Coyotes to five hits while striking out four and walking none to pick up the victory. On the young season, Hickert has 10 punch outs in 11 innings of work with a WHIP of 0.72. All of this after battling back from a season-ending injury he suffered in the opener a year ago.  A Newbury Park High School product, Jackson has been named this week's VC Pirate Student Athlete of the Week.
