New Mexico State senior Bobby Lecount has been named the Western Athletic Conference hitter of the week for the week of April 1-7.
Lecount, a senior from Shoreline, Wash., led the Aggies to three wins last week including a 10-5 win over in-state rival New Mexico and two wins over Dallas Baptist. Lecount hit .462 (6-for-13). He tallied six walks, nine RBI, two home runs, a double, a triple and scored six runs. His extra base hits equated to a 1.154 slugging percentage on the week, while his six walks helped him tally a .650 on-base percentage for the four games. Lecount reached safely at least once in every game last week and extended his hitting streak to five games.
He tallied a solo home run against UNM in a midweek game, before he opened the WAC series against DBU going 2-for-3 with a season-high five RBIs in a 16-5 seven-inning win. He tallied his second consecutive 2-for-3 day against the Patriots as he led NM State to a 7-5 victory in game two to clinch the series. That day he also had a double, a walk and a run scored. He finished the week going 1-for-2 with three walks as the Aggies fell short on a comeback attempt losing 12-10 in 10 innings.
Lecount and the Aggies continue their seven-game home stand with a three-game WAC series against Sacramento State. The series starts, Friday, April 12 at 6:05 p.m. (MT). For ticket information call the Pan American Center box office at 575-646-1420.
