Lander baseball's Kyle Jenkins has been named the Peach Belt Conference Freshman of the Week following his efforts this past week in helping Lander go 4-0 with a midweek win over Erskine and a PBC sweep of Francis Marion.
On the week, the Summerville, S.C., native went 5-for-12 from the plate (.417) with a double, a triple, four runs scored and three RBI.
Jenkins went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Lander's win over Erskine on Wednesday and went 2-for-5 with a triple, a career-high two RBI and two runs scored in a 14-6 win over Francis Marion on Friday.
The freshman roped a double in the bottom of the 10th in a 3-3 game on Saturday and came around to score the winning run, giving Lander its first series win of the season.
Jenkins is the sixth player in program history to earn PBC Player of the Week honors.
Lander returns to action on Tuesday afternoon as the Bearcats travel to No. 9 Belmont Abbey for a 4:30 p.m. contest.
