The Colonial Athletic Association named UNCW freshman Gage Herring the league’s baseball rookie of the week.
Herring allowed two hits in 5.0 shutout innings in UNCW’s 6-2 won over Hofstra on Saturday.
The freshman right-hander faced just two batters over the minimum and struck out four in his first collegiate start.
UNCW (16-7) travels to Campbell on Tuesday for a midweek game against the Camels starting at 6 p.m.
