Sam Taylor Earns Player of the Week Honors

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Chattanooga’s Sam Taylor (Chickamauga, Ga.) was named the Southern Conference Player of the Week Monday afternoon by the league’s office after helping the Mocs to three wins.  The sophomore outfielder carried a .500 batting average over five games in Las Vegas, Nev., at the UNLV Easton Desert Classic, including three extra-base hits.

Starting five games, the leadoff hitter totaled nine hits in 18 at-bats and doubled three times.  She scored four runs and recorded four RBI.  Taylor provided a leadoff hit in four of the Mocs five games.

Taylor was one-for-three against Boise State Friday morning before walking, scoring a run and driving in one run in the Mocs’ 8-0 win against BYU later Friday evening.  Taylor’s best game at the plate came in Chattanooga’s 10-6 win over Nevada Saturday morning, going three-for-four with two RBI and two runs scored.

Against No. 10 Oregon Saturday afternoon, Taylor managed two hits – including a leadoff hit against Ducks’ starting pitcher Karissa Hovinga.  The Chickamauga, Ga., native wrapped up the weekend with a three-for-four performance against Portland State.  In five innings, Taylor doubled, scored a run and drove in one run.

Taylor and the Mocs host the 2014 Frost Classic this weekend, beginning with their home opener Friday at 4 p.m. against Bulter.  Chattanooga also hosts Northwestern State, Radford, Toledo and Campbell during the 10-team tournament.  Click here for a full schedule of the Frost Classic.
