ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- Catawba’s Shaefer Shepard was named the Astroturf South Atlantic Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week, while Newberry’s Albert Baur was tabbed the Astroturf SAC Baseball Player of the Week, for games played April 6-12.  It was announced by the league on Tuesday.

Shepard, a sophomore from Boca Raton, Fla., threw a seven-inning complete game win against Mars Hill on April 11.  He struck out seven Lion hitters and allowed just one run and only one walk in the contest.  The honor is his first Pitcher of the Week nod this season.

Baur, a senior from Philadelphia, Pa., batted .600 with nine hits, three doubles and two home runs to lead the Wolves to a 4-0 record last week, including a series sweep over League foe Carson-Newman.  He posted three multiple hit games and notched a pair of games with three hits.  Against USC Aiken on April 7, Baur hit .600 with three hits, a double, a home run and four RBI.  He finished the four-game span with a slugging percentage of 1.200, an on-base clip of .667 and six total RBI.  The award marks his first Player of the Week selection this season.

Also nominated for Baseball Player of the Week: Steven Cooper (Anderson), Brock Helton (Brevard), T.J. Wharton (Catawba), Will Thompson (Lenoir-Rhyne), Nick Morabito (Lincoln Memorial) and Andrew Bowerman (Tusculum).

Also nominated for Baseball Pitcher of the Week: Chris Ayers (Anderson), J.D. Chaplain (Brevard), Ivan Vieitez (Lenoir-Rhyne) and Wesley Camp (Newberry).
