GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Freshman third baseman Perry Rigby was selected as the NCCAA Baseball Player of the Week, announced the association on Tuesday afternoon.
This marks the second time that a Covenant baseball player has earned this award. Scott Gillespie also won the weekly honor on February 12.
Rigby went 3-for-5 in two games combined last week against Milligan that resulted in two Covenant victories. The freshman from Decatur, Ala., was 2-for-3 with two runs batted in and a double in the first game, then added a hit and two more RBIs in game two.
After Tuesday's game against Sewanee, Rigby leads Covenant with 13 RBIs while batting .429 with five doubles.
Covenant hosts Brescia University in a three-game series beginning on Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. with a single, nine-inning game. A doubleheader starts at 12 p.m. on Saturday.
