The shortstop picks up LSWA Player of the Week award
Shortstop Greg Fontenot of UL and pitcher Don Williams of UL-Monroe were named Tuesday as the Louisiana Sportswriters Association Baseball Players of the Week.
Fontenot, a junior from Lafayette, was named Hitter of the Week as he maintained a .667 on-base percentage, scoring five times throughout a four-game stretch. He hit .583 with six RBI, and he provided several key hits.
On both Saturday and Sunday, he was responsible for what became the game-winning RBI in come-from-behind victories over Middle Tennessee. Fontenot also laid down three sacrifice bunts during the week and was 2-for-2 in stolen bases. He was 4-for-5 with runners in scoring position and 4-for-4 with runners on second and third.
