Luis Florentino has been named the Skyhawk Athlete of the Week for the week of May 16, 2016. 

Florentino helped secure two wins for the Skyhawks at the AAC Tournament in Kingsport, Tenn. With one out in the bottom of the ninth and the tying runner on third base, Florentino came on to pitch in relief and retired two straight batters to give Point a 5-4 win over No. 21 Bryan. It was the senior's first career save. The very next game, Florentino picked up his second career save in an 8-6 win over Bryan, tossing the final 1.1 innings. 

For the season, Florentino ranks fourth on the team in innings pitched (49.2) and strikeouts (50). 

The Skyhawks finished the week in Tennessee as the AAC Tournament Runner-Up and qualified for the NAIA National Championship Opening Round for the second time in program history. Point will take on Taylor University on Tuesday May 17 at 11 a.m. in Savannah, Ga.
