Crabtree Named SLC Hitter Of The Week
April 7, 2008
FRISCO, Texas - Kevin Crabtree has been named the Southland Conference's Hitter of the Week for the first time in his career the conference office announced on Monday after his performance in SFA's games against Texas A&M and Central Arkansas.
It is the second time this season a Lumberjack has received the award after Noel Trevino was honored on March 11 after his efforts against Sacred Heart and Dallas Baptist.
Crabtree hit .400 for the week helped the `Jacks pick up their first SLC series win of the season in Conway, Ark., over the weekend when SFA took two of three from the Bears. He saved his best for last by hitting a pair of home runs and driving in four in the series finale on Sunday.
The senior slugged 1.000 for the week and had 20 total bases on the strength of six extra-base hits. He picked up a pair of triples and a pair of doubles along with his two homers, and also was a perfect three-for-three on stolen base attempts.
Crabtree and the `Jacks will be back in action on Tuesday when they host UNLV at Jaycees Field at 3:00 p.m.
