Athlete of the week



MATT EASLEY

AQUINAS BASEBALL

YEAR: Sophomore

POSITION: P/3B

HIGHLIGHTS: No pitch was safe from Easley's bat this week. The sophomore went 10-for-14 at the plate with three doubles, two triples and seven runs batted in. Easley also was perfect from the mound, posting a 2-0 record across three games.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING: "He's probably one of the best sophomores in the city that nobody really knows about. He's carrying us on his back."

- Coach Mike Laney

JESSIE CLARK

SILVER BLUFF SOFTBALL

YEAR: Junior

POSITION: P

HIGHLIGHTS: Clark allowed only two hits during the 14 innings she logged this week. The junior recorded her fourth no-hitter of the season earlier in the week against Wade Hampton.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING: "You look at her athletically, and you wouldn't think she could pitch as well as she does. But she hits her spots and rarely ever gets rattled. She just shuts teams down with risers, curves and screwballs."

- Coach Eric Hofstetter
