CLINTON, S.C. --- A day after earning Big South Player of the Week honors, junior Zacchaeus Rasberry received his second honor in as many days after being named College Sports Madness Big South Player of the Week as announced by the online publication on May 20.
The honor comes after Rasberry set the Blue Hose single-season D1 record for stolen bases in Saturday’s 15-6 victory over Charleston Southern. Rasberry paced the Blue Hose in the final week of the regular season with three multi-hit games, including a three hit day vs. Georgia State on May 14. The Blue Hose centerfielder led Presbyterian with a .500 average for the week (8-for-16) which included three doubles and a home run. Rasberry matched the team lead for home runs with his seventh on Friday night. Rasberry added two hits in the season finale 15-6 win over CSU. His base thefts in Saturday’s win enable him to be the first Blue Hose to rack up 20 SB in a season in the D1 era.
Rasberry is the second Blue Hose to earn the honors as Reagan Fowler earned the same honor from College Sports Madness back on March 18.
