WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Junior outfielder Luke Dunlap has been named Colonial Athletic Association Co-Player-of-the-Week after helping UNCW top top-ranked UNC Chapel Hill and hitting a torrid .536 (9-for-16) with two home runs and 11 runs batted in last week.

Dunlap, who is in his first full season in the lineup, fashioned a 1.063 slugging percentage and extended his career-long hitting streak to 15 games. He also moved into a tie for the club lead with 35 runs batted in and tied for second with a .385 batting average.

Against North Carolina, Dunlap helped the Seahawks erase an early 6-0 deficit with a game-tying bases-loaded double. In the opener at Towson, he collected four hits and knocked in four more runs and he remained torrid in the second game with three more hits, including two homers, and driving in three runs.

Dunlap is hitting .491 (26-for-53) during his 15-game hitting streak with five doubles and four home runs. Plate discipline has shown during his streak as he’s drawn 16 walks and struck out just four times. In fact, after walking just seven times and striking out 17 times in his first 21 games, Dunlap has reversed that course with 20 base on balls and going down on strikes just nine times in his next 41 games.

In the month of April, Dunlap raised his average 48 points by hitting .475 (28-for-59) and driving in 23 runs. His on base average for the month was .582 and he slugged .763 as the Seahawks went 12-5.

The Seahawks return to action when they open a three-game series against CAA rival Northeastern on May 3 at Brooks Field. First-pitch is slated for 6 p.m.
