Sophomore Preston Ludwick racked up multiple honors after a career weekend in the Centenary Gents Baseball series win against Dallas March 22-23.
Ludwick hit an impressive 10-for-12 (.833) and added two walks, slugged 1.500 percent, recorded a .857 on-base percentage, and managed 22 putouts and even an assist with no errors in helping Centenary win its eighth-straight conference home series. He added five extra-base hits - including three doubles, a triple, and a home run - with eight RBIs and four runs scored.
For his impressive weekend, Ludwick was named Hitter of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) while also being named to the D3Baseball.com Team of the Week, SCAC Hitter of the Week, and the Centenary Athlete of the Week.
Ludwick managed at least one hit, one run scored, and multiple RBIs in every game against Dallas. On Friday night, a 10-4 loss, Ludwick had a home run in two at-bats with two walks, two RBIs, and a run scored. In the first game of a doubleheader Saturday, a Gents 11-5 win, Ludwick hit 4-for-5 with a double, triple, four RBIs, two stolen bases, and two runs scored.
In the rubber game of the series Saturday night, a Gents 12-10 come-from-behind win, Ludwick was unstoppable, registering a hit (including a pair of doubles) in every at-bat with two RBIs and a run scored.
The Diamond Gents return to action Friday for a three-game set at #3 Trinity March 29-30. The series begins Friday night with first pitch at 7 p.m.
