Ga Tech's Matt Skole Named ACC Baseball Player of the Week


GREENSBORO, N.C. - Georgia Tech third baseman Matt Skole has been named Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Player of the Week, while Duke's Andrew Wolcott was recognized as the league's Pitcher of the Week for the period of March 15-22.

Skole, a freshman from Woodstock, Ga., went 10-for-15 (.667) with three home runs and 11 RBI in last weekend's three-game series at Virginia Tech. Skole's three-run homer highlighted a six-run ninth-inning comeback in the Yellow Jackets' 10-9 win over the Hokies in the series opener.

Skole also posted a career-high four hits, including his second home run of the series, in Saturday's game. He then added another three-run homer in the fourth inning of Sunday's series finale, which was the hit that gave the Yellow Jackets the lead for keeps. Skole finished that game 4-for-5 with five RBI.

For the week, Skole compiled slugging percentage of 1.043 in the five games, helping Georgia Tech to a 4-1 record. He batted .565 (13-for-23) with three homers, two doubles and 12 RBI. A true freshman that has started every game at third base this season, Skole currently leads the team in homers (7) and stands second on the squad with a .389 batting average and in RBI (25).
