CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Presbyterian College senior first baseman AJ Priaulx (Warner Robins, Ga.) has been named the Big South Conference Baseball Player of the Week for games played March 5-11, it was announced today by the Conference office.
Priaulx posted an astounding .722 (13-for-18) batting average in five non-conference games last week, headlined by a pair of 5-for-5 performances. Within his 13 hits, the first baseman posted a pair of doubles, drove in two runs and scored three times, as his on-base percentage was a conference-high .737 last week. His first 5-for-5 mark came on Wednesday against North Carolina Central where he slapped a double and scored twice.
