Murdoch, Harris Earn NEWMAC Weekly Honors

Coast Guard swept the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) weekly baseball awards as senior Alex Murdoch was named the Athlete of the Week and junior Walter Harris was named the NEWMAC Pitcher of the Week.

Murdoch, the only senior on the team, entered the final game of the season and only game of the week for the Bears with 95 career hits, never having more than three hits in a game during his four seasons.

Coast Guard started the game with a 10-0 lead in the middle of the first inning in a game halted earlier this season. Murdoch singled in that first inning.

On Saturday when the game was continued he singled in the second inning, had a two-run single in third, an infield single in the fifth, and then in the ninth delivered his fifth hit of the game, a single to right to give him 100 for his career. He also drove in three runs and scored three runs in the 20-0 win over Emerson.

With the five hits, he finished the season with a .306 average as the Bears closed out the season with three straight wins.

Harris was brilliant in his final appearance of the season allowing just one hit over his five innings of work to get the win and finish the season with a record of 2-3. He allowed just a single in the fourth inning.
