Kenai’s Paul Steffensen is back hitting home runs for Mesa Community College. Steffensen clobbered a grand slam, a double and drove in a career-high six RBIs as Mesa prevailed 13-5 over Benedictine in a Feb. 5 contest.
The 2017 Kenai Central grad has since tallied hits in four of his last six games, all extra-base knocks. It has helped the sophomore to a .313 average and a .625 slugging percentage in 2019 thus far. Last season, Steffensen strung together a 26-game hitting streak, believed to be the longest for an Alaskan player at the collegiate level, according to the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame blog.
