Dula Selected as SAC Baseball Player of the Week


ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba first baseman Chris Dula (Troutman, NC/S. Iredell HS) and Lenoir-Rhyne first baseman Colton Hansley have been named co-SAC Baseball Players of the Week, while Wingate starter Olen Little was selected as the conference’s Pitcher of the Week.  It was announced on Tuesday.

Dula paced Catawba in a dominant three-game sweep of Brevard over the weekend.  He also helped the Indians split a two-game series with sixth-ranked USC Aiken earlier in the week.

The junior had four multi-hit games on the week and homered in both games of a double-header with Brevard on Saturday.  He also had five of his six RBI in the BC series.

For the week, Dula hit .556 with a .619 OBP.   

Hansley, meanwhile, led Lenoir-Rhyne to a weekend sweep of Anderson by hitting .556 with a slugging percentage of 1.333.  The senior had hits in all three games, including a three-hit performance on Friday in an 8-1 L-R win that included a double.

Hansley then hit home runs in both games of a Saturday double-header.  For the week, he had five RBI, four run scored and compiled an on-base percentage of .692.

Little clinched a series victory for Wingate over LMU on Sunday by throwing seven scoreless innings in a 9-2 Bulldog win.  He allowed just five hits in the game while striking out five and walking none.  Just one LMU hit against the right-hander went for extra bases. 

The performance lowered Little’s SAC-best ERA to 0.92.  He has allowed only four earned runs and 31 hits in 39 innings pitched so far this season.
