ESPN 104.5 Athlete of the Week

Briana Matazinsky, a senior softball player from Tamarac, has been named our inaugural “ESPN 104.5 Athlete of the Week.”

Beginning today, we are highlighting one Section II athlete per week for their accomplishments on the playing fields or courts.

Matazinsky just finished helping the Bengals to back-to-back Wasaren League championships. She was also named Wasaren League Most Valuable Player both seasons.

In 2014, all Matazinsky did was hit .556 with seven homers, 10 doubles, five triples and 21 RBIs. She struck out just twice in a season that saw her post an on-base percentage of .642 and an OPS (on-base + slugging percentage) of over 1.000.
