Query Earns SAC Baseball Player of the Week Honors
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba catcher Ryan Query, of Kannapolis, NC, and Wingate pitcher Tyler Almond, of Oakboro, NC, were named the South Atlantic Conference Baseball Position Player and Pitcher of the Week. It was announced by league officials on Monday. Query helped Catawba to four wins last week to keep its conference title hopes alive.
Query, a 5-10, 180-pound senior, led Catawba to a 4-1 week, including a three-game SAC sweep over Lenoir-Rhyne. The former A.L. Brown standout hit .409 and collected 14 RBI during the week.
In Catawba’s 15-14 win over No. 11 Erskine, he went 3-for-5 with three RBI, scored two runs, and hit a homer. In the weekend SAC series, Query went 6-for-13 with 11 RBI. He keyed the sweep with a pair of three-run homers in Sunday’s 10-7 victory. He clubbed three home runs on the week to grab the team lead with 11 on the year.
Almond pitched seven shut-out innings in Wingate’s 14-0 win at Lincoln Memorial on Saturday. He scattered four hits, walked one and posted four strikeouts in the victory as the Bulldogs took two of three games this weekend against the Railsplitters.
The SAC Baseball Player and Pitcher of the Week are selected by a vote of the league’s nine sports information directors.
