NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Southland Conference announced Tuesday that `Jacks second baseman Noel Trevino has been named the SLC Hitter of the Week for the first time after his performance in five games for SFA last week.
This marks the fifth time since 2006 that an SFA player has received the honor with Steven Hill (twice), Jared Pitts and Kevin Croft receiving the honor in previous seasons.
Trevino's offense pushed SFA to a 4-1 record on the week, including a four-game sweep of Sacred Heart. He started the week off with a modest 2-for-5 performance against Dallas Baptist, but then quickly heated up when the Pioneers made their way to Jaycees Field.
He went 2-for-4 in a seven-inning, 8-1 SFA win where he picked up an RBI and a stolen base in the process; however, he would quickly better those numbers in upcoming games.
Trevino opened up the scoring in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader with a two-out, two-RBI triple off the center field wall as SFA would go on to rout Sacred Heart 19-5 in that first game.
In game two he posted the best offensive single game by any Lumberjack so far this year, going 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs and six RBI in another SFA win, this time by a 13-10 count.
Trevino played the role of hero in the series' final game, hitting a one-out solo home run in the bottom of the seventh to break a 2-2 tie and lift the `Jacks to a 4-2 win.
For the week he finished with a .450 batting average and a 1.050 slugging percentage, along with three home runs, 11 runs scored and 11 RBI.
Trevino and the `Jacks are back in action at 6:30 this evening, taking on the University of Houston at Cougar Field. With a win it would mark SFA's first five-game win streak since 1988.
