SPARTANBURG, S.C. (March 17, 2015) – Trey York (Knoxville, Tenn.) won two of the first three Southern Conference Player of the Week honors this season, and on Tuesday the Buccaneer infield added another accolade to his resume, as he was named the league’s Player of the Month for February.
In seven games last month, York hit .500, scoring 11 runs and driving in 10 as the Bucs went 5-2. The Knoxville, Tenn., native hit safely in all seven games, turning in five multi-hit contests, with seven of his 11 hits going for extra bases. He also slugged 1.077 and had an on-base percentage of .536.
York opened the season with three home runs in the Bucs’ first two games, driving in six runs on the weekend en route to earning SoCon Player of the Week and Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week honors. The Buccaneer slugger had three hits and tied his career high of four RBIs in ETSU’s second game of the season, against Eastern Kentucky, and became the sixth player in program history with two triples in a game when he hit a pair against USC Upstate on Feb. 22. York also had a pair of hits against UNC Asheville the day prior and collected three in a doubleheader split against Butler on Feb. 28, including a pair of doubles in a game-one win. York, who was named the SoCon Player of the Week after the Butler series, scored multiple runs in four contests in February.
York and the Buccaneers open a six-game road swing today at Morehead State. First pitch is set for 3 p.m. at Allen Field.
