Nobles and Headrick earn GNAC weekly awardsSalem-News.com Sports
(Monmouth, Oregon) - Coming off a four-game sweep of Saint Martin's in which Western Oregon took over first place in the GNAC by 104 percentage points, Aaron Headrick and Cam Nobles have both been selected for conference player of the week honors.
Headrick, a senior infielder from Cupertino, Calif. (Cupertino High School), was named the GNAC Player of the Week after recording eight hits in 14 at bats and either scored or drove in almost half of his team's runs (12 of 26) as they swept a four-game series with Saint Martin's. Headrick, who had four of WOU's eight doubles, scored seven runs and drove in five, both series highs. He had a RBI single to snap a 2-2 ninth-inning tie in Sunday's 5-2 win. Then on Monday, he had five hits in six at-bats to key a doubleheader sweep.
Cam Nobles, a senior pitcher from Mills Creek, Wash. (Jackson High School), shared GNAC Pitcher of the Week honors after he allowed just one earned run in eight innings in Sunday's extra-inning game. He gave up seven hits, while walking two and striking out four. Over his last two starts Nobles has held opponents to 11 hits and two runs (one earned) while striking out nine in 14 innings pitched. He also lowered his ERA nearly a run and a half in the process. Nobles shared pitcher of the week honors with Sean McDonald of NNU.
While WOU (23-11, 13-3 GNAC) is leading the GNAC by virtue of percentage points, it remains tied with Saint Martin's (21-18, 17-7 GNAC) in games back within the conference standings.
The Wolves will face a tough road test this weekend when they go to Montana State Billings for a four-game set Apr. 22-23.
