TRE-VON JOHNSON HONORED AS MEAC PLAYER OF THE WEEK
April 16, 2012
NORFOLK, Va. - Two days after having a career day with nine hits in a doubleheader, Tre-Von Johnson earned Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Player of the Week, the league announced Monday.
Johnson (East New Market, Md.) had a .625 batting average during the week, hitting safely in all five games, including four multi-hit contests. In the doubleheader versus Norfolk State, he went a perfect 6-for-6 in game one and 3-for-4 in the second contest for a nine-hit day. He finished the series with three hits in five at bats on Sunday to finish with 12 hits against the Spartans.
During the week he also contributed four doubles, seven runs scored, a stolen base and four RBI.
For Johnson, it is his second-ever conference weekly award, earning a MEAC Rookie of the Week award in 2009. This is UMES's second weekly award of the season but first Player of the Week honor. Two weeks ago, Tyler Witte (Westminster, Md.) earned MEAC Pitcher of the Week.
In addition, Jacob Foreman (Little Orleans, Md.) was recognized as an "Other Top Performer" for his complete game victory over the Spartans, allowing one earned run in seven innings.
Johnson, Witte, Foreman and the Hawks will face Navy on Tuesday at Hawks Stadium at 3:00 p.m.
