Dees, Ellis Named Student-Athletes of the Week
CLINTON, S.C. – Women's lacrosse's Catherine Ellis (Charlotte, N.C.) and baseball's Beau Dees (Blenheim, S.C.) were named Presbyterian College's Female and Male Athletes of the Week for their accomplishments on the court for the week ending February 25.
Dees delivered a sterling performance in seven innings of work to move to 2-0 on the year, toppling USC Upstate on Saturday. The junior did not allow a single run, limiting Upstate to only four hits while striking out eight with one walk. He struck out all three batters in the second inning looking and secured five of the game’s first six outs via strikeout. He also fanned one in the third and one in the fourth and held opponents to a .160 batting average. Dees pitched a third of an inning in relief on Wednesday against NC Central, striking out the only batter he faced.
Ellis was named the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Player of the Week on Tuesday for helping PC to two wins. Ellis tallied five goals in PC’s season-opening win over Newberry before notching seven scores on Saturday to lead PC over Delaware State. She also assisted on three goals against Newberry, a game in which she put the Blue Hose ahead early with four first-half goals. Against Delaware State, her four goals in the second half -- including back-to-back scores with nine and eight minutes remaining, kept the Hornets from getting close. For the week, Ellis tallied 12 goals and 16 points, with four free-position scores.
