|Moore Named CAA Rookie-of-the-Week|
WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW freshman shortstop Lauren Moore has been named the Colonial Athletic Association’s Rookie-of-the-Week, it was announced on Tuesday.
“Lauren was an extremely disciplined hitter this week,” said UNCW Head Coach Kristy Norton. “Hopefully this honor will give her the confidence she needs moving forward.”
A native of Goldsboro, N.C., Moore went 6-for-12 at the plate in leading UNCW to a 3-2 record last week. Moore also drew three walks and was hit by a pitch once as she fashioned a .625 on-base percentage. On the base paths, Moore was a perfect 4-for-4 in stolen base attempts and scored a team-high four runs during the five-game stretch.
Moore opened the week with a hit and stolen base in the Seahawks’ doubleheader split with Marshall and North Carolina A&T on March 20 before going 5-for-7 at the plate with four runs scored and three stolen bases to help UNCW take two out of three games in their league series at Drexel over the weekend.
UNCW (15-15) returns to action March 29-30 as it hosts Delaware in a three-game CAA series at Boseman Field.
