MARTINEZ, Ga. – Centerfielder Sean Harrell (Martinez, Ga.) continued his torrid streak and picked up his second-straight Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Player of the Week after hitting .500 with a 1.143 slugging percentage in four games as the Bobcats went 3-1 this past week.
The senior began with a 3-for-4 outing and a home run against Lenoir-Rhyne University in a 6-5 loss. Harrell and Georgia College then ended Columbus State University's school-record 21-game winning streak with a 3-for-4 day that featured two home runs. GCSU swept the Cougars on the road as Harrell hit .400 in the series, driving in six. For the week he had three home runs, seven RBI, scored five runs and stole a base. Harrell leads the PBC in hitting and on-base percentage and is third in slugging.
