20 Feb Next Level Member Makenna Matthijs Named Southern Conference Player Of The Week!
Congratulations to Next Level member Makenna Matthijs on being named the Southern Conference Player Of The Week. The UNCG freshman had a quite a weekend!…..
Makenna (DH Conley ’17) collected six hits, five RBIs and had a .429 batting average in 5 games over the weekend. She hit a grand slam, her first collegiate home run, for the game-winning run against Lipscomb. Against UMKC she hit a walk-off double to lead the Spartans to a 3-2 victory. She opened the weekend by going 2-3 in a 5-2 win over Massachusetts and had two walks and two sac bunts against Ohio in the following game. Also she went 2-4 with a run in the 3-2 victory over Virginia. Matthijs has three game-winning hits just two weeks into the season. She also leads the SoCon in RBIs (nine) and ranks second in hits (11), doubles (three) and total bases (17). She put good work in this summer in our Female Xplosion Class & reported to campus ready to go. Proud to see her work paying off! Way to go Makenna!
