NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Southland Conference announced Tuesday that `Jacks second baseman Noel Trevino has been named the SLC Hitter of the Week for the second time after his performance in four games for SFA last week.
It is the second time in three weeks that a Lumberjack has won the award after Kevin Crabtree earned the honor two weeks ago. Overall, it is the third time a `Jack has claimed the award.
Trevino was moved into the leadoff spot for the `Jacks this week and responded with a week that raised his batting average 28 points. He had multiple hits in each of SFA's three games for the week, and just came up just a home run shy of the cycle in SFA's 8-3 win over Nicholls State on Friday. He also drove in at least one run in each of the games and now has a double in four of his last five.
He started off the week with a 2-for-5 performance against Dallas Baptist, before taking full advantage of the pitching staffs in Thibodaux. He started off the Nicholls State series by getting a triple, double and single in consecutive at-bats before getting a sacrifice fly in his fourth at-bat. He finished 3-for-5 with three RBI.
He then picked up four more hits in the next two games, including the go-ahead RBI double late in the series finale against the Colonels. The sweep of Nicholls kept SFA alive in the SLC Tournament race.
Trevino and the `Jacks are back in action Monday and Tuesday with a two-game set with UT-Pan American at Jaycees Field. SFA continues SLC play this weekend with a three-game series against Texas State at home.
