The South Atlantic Conference Announces AstroTurf Baseball Player and Pitcher of the Week Honors

ROCK HILL, S.C(TheSAC.com) – Newberry infielder Colin Allman has been named the South Atlantic Conference AstroTurf Baseball Player of the Week and Lenoir-Rhyne right-handed pitcher John Grigg has been named the South Atlantic Conference AstroTurf Baseball Pitcher of the Week for games played Feb. 26-Mar. 4, the League announced today.

Allman, a sophomore from Tampa, Fla., was nearly unstoppable at the plate this week, as he led the Newberry Wolves to a 3-1 record; including a SAC series win over Mars Hill. He batted .588, going 10-for-17, with three doubles, a triple, four home runs, 11 RBI and nine runs scored. He also had an on-base percentage of .650 and a slugging percentage of 1.588. Allman's biggest game of the week was the series opener versus Mars Hill. He went 4-for-6 with a triple, three home runs, four runs scored and seven RBI. His final hit of the day was an extra-innings grand slam that gave the Wolves the 11-6 win.

Grigg, a sophomore from Lawndale, N.C., threw a five-hit shutout to lead the Bears to a 5-0 victory over Catawba in the second game of their doubleheader last week. Grigg struck out five batters and gave up just two walks in the win. He is now 3-0 on the year with a 2.49 ERA.
