MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WTVA/BMC Athletics) - The SSAC announced today that Austin Looker (SR/Lakeland, TN) has been named its conference Player of the Week.
Looker is coming off a week where he went 13-for-20 (.650) at the plate in five games against LeMoyne-Owen and No. 19 William Carey.
On the week, he knocked in nine runs, scored seven runs, had a triple, three doubles and stole a base.
On the season, Looker is hitting .362 with three homers, 41 RBI, 31 runs scored and 10-for-12 in stolen bases while slugging at a .539 clip.
"It's an honor to be named Player of the Week in such a tough conference full of talent," Looker said.
