CHARLOTTE, N.C. (www.BigSouthSports.com) – Campbell senior outfielder/designated hitter Jeff Hahs (O’Fallon, Ill.) has been named the Big South Conference Baseball Player of the Week, while Camel senior right-hander Wes Noble (Lebanon, Ohio) has been named the Starting Pitcher of the Week for games played May 7-13, it was announced today by the Conference office. In addition, Presbyterian College junior right-hander Colton Springs (Blenheim, S.C.) has been tabbed the Relief Pitcher of the Week and High Point utility player Tanner Wells (Goldsboro, N.C.) has been named the Freshman of the Week.
Hahs posted a hit in all five of Campbell’s games last week, headlined by a 3-for-4 performance with three runs scored and a home run in a series-opening home win over Winthrop on Friday. Earlier in the week, he posted three hits, including a pair of doubles, as the Camels split a two-game set at Ohio State. In the series against the Eagles, he recorded five hits and helped CU to at least a share of the Big South regular-season title. The senior finished with the fourth-highest slugging percentage in the conference in last week’s games with a .762 clip.
Noble tossed a complete game two-hit shutout in Sunday’s regular-season title clinching win over Winthrop. The senior, in his final home game, struck out a season-high eight hitters and did not issue a walk, as the complete game was the first in his collegiate career. After he gave up a one-out double in the third, he bounced back and retired the next 20 Winthrop batters to seal the win.
Springs tossed four hitless innings over a span of three games and struck out eight en route to a victory and a save. After he completed an inning of work and struck out one Davidson hitter on Wednesday, he shined in the series win over Longwood last weekend. The junior earned the save in a 5-3 victory on Friday, as he struck out all three hitters he faced to seal the triumph. On Saturday, he tossed two complete, struck out four and did not issue a walk in his lone win of the week.
Wells recorded a hit in all four of High Point’s victories last week, including three multi-hit contests. The freshman started the week with three hits, headlined by a pair of two-out doubles, to go along with three RBI and a pair of runs scored in HPU’s narrow 6-5 road win at Elon on Tuesday. In the series sweep at UNC Asheville, he was 5-for-14 (.357) with a double, three runs scored and two RBI.
