UNCW’s Noah Liles Named CAA Rookie-of-the-Week
WILMINGTON, North Carolina (UNCWSports.com) – Following a slow start to his season, freshman Noah Liles heated up last week hitting .667 (8-for-12) and was named Rookie-of-the-Week by the Colonial Athletic Association on Monday.
Liles entered the Quinnipiac series with two hits to his credit for the season, but collected four hits alone in the series opener, a 19-0 rout of the Bobcats. Liles came off the bench in game two and added another hit to his credit. On Sunday, he went 3-for-5 as UNCW completed a weekend sweep with a 12-3 victory.
Liles scored four runs and knocked in three and carries a four-game hitting streak into this week’s action. The Seahawks host East Carolina on Wednesday at 6 p.m. and then welcome Hofstra to Brooks Field for the opening series of CAA play beginning on Friday at 6 p.m.
