MOUNT BERRY, Ga. - Sophomore pitcher William Gibbons has been named to the D3baseball.com National Team-of-the-Week, the publication announced on Tuesday.
Gibbons, a reliever from Birmingham, Ala., led the Vikings to back-to-back wins over nationally ranked opponents, including the reigning national champions last weekend. In his first save opportunity against No. 20 Texas-Tyler, he tossed two innings of one-hit ball with two strikeouts to seal the win. The next day, against No. 7 Trinity (Tex.), Gibbons closed out the ninth allowing one hit and striking out two for his second save of the weekend.
For the week, he appeared in three contests pitching four total innings and only allowing two hits and six strikeouts.
The Vikings will take on No. 4 Emory University on Thursday afternoon.
