SHREVEPORT, La. – Centenary’s Aaron Quintanilla was named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Player of the Week for his efforts in non-conference play this week, as announced by the conference office.

Quintanilla led the Gents with a .474 batting average as he compiled a team-best nine hits in five games over the week as Centenary went 3-2 with wins over LeTourneau University and Louisiana College.

The Houston, Texas, native posted a hit in all five games with three multiple hit efforts and posted three extra base hits, including two doubles and a homerun. His five RBI tied for tops on the team. The sophomore posted a .737 slugging percentage and a .545 on-base clip. 

For the season, Quintanilla is sixth in the SCAC with three homeruns while batting .308 with a .477 slugging percentage. He has driven in 21 runs with seven doubles, one triple, and 21 runs scored.

Quintanilla becomes the first SCAC Player of the Week since he won the award during Week 10 of last season and is the third Gent to receive one of the conference’s weekly accolades as he joins pitchers Taylor Henry and Jake McFarland.

Centenary returns to action on Tuesday, April 14 as it hosts Louisiana State University-Shreveport. First pitch is slated for 6 p.m.
