Player-of-the-Week Nominee

Corey Dick, Infielder, Junior, Albemarle, N.C./Albemarle

- Led UNCW with a .364 batting average, going 4-for-11 and knocking in five runs. Dick plated three runs in UNCW’s loss to Kentucky and opened the season by driving in the eventual winning runs against VMI.

Pitcher-of-the-Week Nominee

Mat Batts, Lefthander, Senior, Winston-Salem, N.C./Mount Tabor (Western Carolina)

- Batts didn’t figure in the decision, but struck out nine in his season debut against VMI. The reigning CAA Pitcher-of-the-Year walked one and allowed six hits and three runs, two earned, in five innings.


The Seahawks topped VMI on opening day for the program’s sixth straight opening-day victory … Senior RHP Ricky Holden picked up the win for the second straight year in relief … The home win was also UNCW’s fourth straight in season openers … Senior RHP William Prince earned the save against VMI, it was his first since the 2012 season when he earned a save against William & Mary … Defensively, UNCW committed eight errors during opening weekend, including three in each of the first two games that led to eight unearned runs … Junior RHP Jordan Ramsey suffered the loss against Kentucky after allowing 10 runs, but just three earned following UNCW fielding miscues … The Seahawk bullpen was strong over the weekend, combing for a 1.98 ERA and limiting opponents to a .208 batting average over 13.2 innings … Six Seahawks made their collegiate debuts as UNCW used 29 players over the course of three games … UNCW dropped to 21-50 against nationally-ranked opponents since 2004 and 12-19 at home … Freshman Joe Bertone belted his first career homer on Sunday against Virginia.

Attendance: The Seahawks drew 7,453 fans this past weekend, including a Brooks Field record 3,826 on Sunday to watch the Seahawks play top-ranked Virginia. The previous record of 3,608 was set in 2009 against No. 1 ranked North Carolina.
