Houston Tabbed As SAC Baseball Player of the Week

ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- Catawba’s Blake Houston was tabbed the Astroturf South Atlantic Conference Baseball Player of the Week, while Tyler Konzen from Brevard was named the Astroturf South Atlantic Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week for games played March 2-8.  It was announced by the league on Tuesday.

Houston, a senior from Mt. Ulla, N.C., batted .571 with eight hits and nine RBI to lead the Catawba Indians to a 4-0 record last week, including a series sweep over League foe Lenoir-Rhyne.  He posted multiple hits in three of the four games he played in and highlighted his week with three hits, four RBI and a triple in the series opener against the Bears on March 7.  The outfielder posted three extra-base hits in the four-game span to finish with a slugging percentage of .857.  He also chipped in a stolen base on the week.  The award marks his first Player of the Week plaudit this season.

Konzen, a sophomore from Orlando, Fla. posted a pair of saves and six strikeouts in three appearances for the Tornados last week.  After posting a pair of strikeouts in two innings-pitched against North Greenville on March 4, he followed that effort with three strikeouts in three innings of work to earn the save against Mars Hill on March 6.  The next day, Konzen picked up his second save as he fired two innings with one strikeout against the Lions.  He finished his week with a 0.00 ERA and just three hits allowed.  The honor is his first Pitcher of the Week selection this season.
