Before the Week That Was gets rolling, we at House of Sparky would like to congratulate the Arizona State baseball and softball teams on their successful seasons. While each of their runs ended sooner than we hoped, both teams surpassed expectations and created palpable excitement for Sun Devil Athletics entering 2013.

But for those diehard Devils who haven't gotten their diamond fix, we'll be delving deeper into ASU's baseball and softball seasons in their respective Year in Review series. Now that I got that shameless plug out of the way, here's Arizona State's Week in Review:

Four stories to read from last week

News and Notes

  • A big tip of the cap to the Arizona State softball team. Another Women's College World Series appearance for Clint Meyers and company. Even though they went 0-2 in the tournament, with only one senior in the starting lineup, the future looks bright.
  • Arizona State sophomore golfer Neomi Jimenez was named a Second Team All-American this week. Jimenez finished this season with the 14th-lowest scoring average in the nation and was named a First Team All-Pac-12 selection.
  • The early season Pac-12 television schedule was released earlier this week. ASU will open against Sacramento State on Thursday September 5th at 7 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks. The following week, ASU hosts Wisconsin at 7:30 p.m. on either ESPN or ESPN2. The Halloween contest against Washington State will be played at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN.
