Varsity Player of the Week (3/20-3/25): Corey Collins

Congratulations to this week’s player of the week, freshman catcher, outfielder and DH, Corey Collins. Corey hit .625 (5 for 8) with a 2B, a HR, 4 RBI and 2 runs scored. In addition to his great average, Corey walked 4 times and posted a .850 on base percentage. Corey’s hits this week were timely and extremely important. In game #2 vs Mountain View, Corey hit a late game single sending Parker Coyne from 1st to 3rd base. Coyne then scored on Cade Heil’s sac fly to tie the game at 1 in the 6th inning. Two days later, Corey blasted a first inning, 3 run HR at Collins Hill to open the scoring, putting the Dawgs ahead early. Corey has been a team guy all season as he has filled many roles. He does whatever he is asked to do, always putting the team first!

Varsity Player of the Week (3/13-3/18): Cade Heil

After a week hiatus due to our bye, the player of the week is back! Week 4 gives us our 5th different winner, senior pitcher and first basemen, Cade Heil. In three games this week, Cade hit .714 (5 for 7) with a double, 2 RBI, 4 Runs and an OBP of .910. On the mound, Heil picked up his 3rd win of the season beating Peachtree Ridge 5-4 on the road. Heil battled the weather and some uncharacteristic defensive mistakes to grind out a win. In the same game, Cade had a huge 2 out, 2 strike hit to break a 3-3 tie and give the Bulldogs the lead in the 6th inning for good. A combination of Cade’s play on the field and his leadership off, played a major role in the Dawgs getting to 15-0.
