San Luis Obispo - With a huge performance in Cal Poly’s upset of No. 1 California on Saturday, Mustangs sophomore midfielder Mitch Stickney has earned MCLA Division I Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour for the period ending April 16.

Facing off against the lone remaining undefeated team in the country in top-ranked Cal, the Mercer Island, Wash., product buried five goals to spark Cal Poly to the 13-10 win.

The win gives the No. 5 Mustangs the top seed in the upcoming WCLL tournament.

“Mitch is tough, dodges hard, and isn't afraid to shoot,” said Cal Poly coach Bobby Dabrieo. “He tends to be at his best in big games and we'll continue to rely on him to be a key component of our offense as we head into the postseason.”

For his efforts in earning the Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour, Stickney will receive a new Under Armour Command Head – a $100 value. Under Armour is the proud sponsor of the MCLA.
