Hot-Hitting Lawhorn Earns C-USA Honor

From ECU Media Relations

GREENVILLE — East Carolina freshman first baseman/outfielder Darryl Lawhorn has been named this week`s Conference USA Hitter of the Week, the league office announced Monday.

Lawhorn, a product of New Hanover High in Wilmington, led the Pirates to wins over Elon, Campbell, and Houston over the past week. In five games, he batted .588 (10-for-17) with three doubles, one home run, seven runs scored, and six RBI.

Lawhorn was particularly impressive this past weekend in helping the Pirates (23-6-1) win two of three games against fifth-ranked Houston. Lawhorn reached base in each of his first 10 plate appearances against the Cougars and finished the series 7-for-10, with two doubles, five RBIs, and four runs scored. His seventh-inning single in Friday`s 5-4 win drove in the tying and game-winning runs. He was 4-for-4 with a walk in Saturday`s 11-4 win.

He also had a big game last Tuesday against Elon, going 2-for-3 with a double and a home run, his 13th of the season.

Lawhorn has already tied the ECU freshman record for most home runs in a season. He leads C-USA in home runs, RBIs (40), and total bases (102). His .424 batting average and .816 slugging percentage leads the team.

He is the third Pirate to receive C-USA weekly honors this season. Senior third baseman Bryant Ward was named Co-Hitter of the Week on February 18 and junior left-hander Sam Narron won Pitcher-of-the-Week honors on March 4.
