18_BSB_BowdenSACPOW

ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- Catawba first baseman Chance Bowden has been named the South Atlantic Conference AstroTurf Baseball Player of the Week and Carson-Newman right-handed pitcher Greg Valentine has been named the South Atlantic Conference AstroTurf Baseball Pitcher of the Week for games played Feb. 19-25. It was announced by the league office on Tuesday.
 
Bowden, a senior from Salisbury, N.C., had a monster week at the plate for the Catawba Indians, batting .611 with four home runs, a double, a triple and 13 RBI. Thanks to his offensive prowess, Catawba was 4-0 for the week, including a three-game sweep of Coker. In the series with Coker, Bowden batted .833, going 10-for-12 at the plate with a pair of four-hit games. In Saturday’s doubleheader, he was a perfect 8-for-8 with 10 RBI. He also tied a school record with three home runs and seven RBI in the final game of the series.

Valentine, a junior from Knoxville, Tenn., went 2-0 with two wins in relief for the Eagles. His first win of the week came against No. 20 Northwood. He allowed just one run on three hits with three strikeouts in an inning and two-thirds of work. He then secured the Eagle’s SAC series win over Newberry for his second win. He held Newberry scoreless in four and two-thirds innings of relief work, allowing just three hits and striking out six. For the week, Valentine had a 1.42 ERA allowing just one run on six hits with nine strikeouts in six and third innings on the mound.

These are the first Player of the Week selections for both Bowden and Valentine this season.
