NEW LONDON, Conn.-Coast Guard sophomore Cory Sonnega has been named CGASPORTS.com Athlete of the Week for the past week as announced by the Coast Guard sports information staff.
The first baseman from Shoreline, Wash. hit a robust .450 (9-for-20) on the week with seven runs batted in, two scored, and a double. He also drew a pair of walks and was 1-for-1 on stolen base attempts on the week. In addition he handled 60 of 61 chances at first base without issue.
Sonnega is now hitting .308 on the year, good for third on the club (among those with qualifying at-bats) and his 12 RBI have him in a three-way tie for third on the team. He's also 3-for-3 stealing bases, has three doubles, and has scored 11 runs while striking out just nine times in 88 plate appearances (just once every 9.8 at bats).
Coast Guard will return to action on Tuesday, April 8th when they host Wheaton for a 3:30 pm NEWMAC tilt.
