NAPERVILLE, Ill. - Utah Valley's Stone Ramsey and Adam Gunn were honored as the Great West Conference Baseball Players of the Week after their outstanding performances last week. The award was announced Wednesday by the conference office.
Ramsey, a freshman from Tampa, Fla., recorded a .615 batting average as UVU took 3-of-4 from conference foe NJIT this past weekend. The designated hitter registered four extra-base hits and slugged 1.000. Ramsey collected four RBIs, four runs scored, three doubles, two stolen bases and a triple while producing multi-hit games in each start he made.
Gunn, a senior from Santa Clara, Utah, won Friday's series-opener in a pitcher's duel against NJIT's Tripp Davis. The right-handed hurler threw seven shutout innings while recording a season-high seven strikeouts. Gunn scattered three hits and only issued two walks.
Ramsey is the second UVU position player -- Kai Hatch -- to receive the award so far this season with Gunn the first Wolverine pitcher.
The Wolverines host Houston Baptist beginning Thursday in a four-game series.
