Query Named SAC Baseball Position Player of the Week
Query enjoyed four multi-hit games during the week
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba’s Ryan Query (Kannapolis, NC/Brown HS) and Carson-Newman’s Brett Hontz have received South Atlantic Conference Player and Pitcher of the Week honors. It was announced by the league on Tuesday.
Query, a 5-10, catcher, led the Catawba Indians to a 3-1 mark last week with a midweek win over Pfeiffer then picking up two wins in three games over the weekend at Lenoir-Rhyne. For the week, the junior backstop hit .632 in 17 at bats, with 12 hits and two doubles along with six runs batted in to help Catawba move into first place in the SAC. The Indians are 22-11 overall and 10-5 in the SAC.
Hontz, a senior pitcher from Newton Square, Pennsylvania, helped the Eagles finish 3-2 last week. Hontz pitched only one game for Carson-Newman during the week’s play but turned in a stellar performance by recording a complete game win over conference opponent Tusculum in the first game of a three-game conference series. Hontz pitched nine innings and allowed only six Pioneer hits, two runs and no earned runs with one walk and 13 strikeouts to improve his personal record to 6-1 on the season.
The SAC Player of the Week is determined by a vote of the sports information directors in the league.
