WILMINGTON, North Carolina - UNCW senior infielder Hunter Ridge was named to the Coastal Plain League's All-Star team after a solid summer season with his hometown Asheboro Copperheads.

Despite playing first base for the Seahawks, Ridge was selected to the second-team as an outfielder.

Ridge batted .274 with seven doubles and four home runs. He knocked in 18 runs and scored 15 as the Copperheads made a later surge to qualify for the CPL postseason. In the league's midseason All-Star game, Ridge earned Defensive MVP honors and was the winner of the home run contest.

Ridge finished his career as the Copperheads all-time leader in hits and runs batted in.

The senior from Asheboro, N.C., enters his final season with the Seahawks poised to become the program's all-time leader in several offensive categories, including hits, on base average, runs batted in and doubles.

The Seahawks open the team practice portion of their fall season on Sept. 17.
