CCC Player of the Week Release

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (March 15, 2016) -
Senior second baseman Eduardo Colmenares (Caracas, Venezuela) and freshman infielder Alex Loparco (Riverside, Conn.) of the Western New England University baseball team have both earned weekly honors from the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC), the league office announced yesterday.
Colmenares was named the CCC Player of the Week, while Loparco collected Rookie of the Week accolades following Western New England's 4-0 start to the 2016 campaign last week.
Colmenares posted multi-hit performances in each contest last week, batting .625 (10-for-16) with two doubles and one home run, while also driving in six runs and scoring eight. In Western New England's 6-1 victory over Saint Joseph's of Maine on Saturday, he went 3-for-4 at the plate with a home run, a double and three RBI.
Loparco has enjoyed an impressive start to his collegiate career, batting .667 (10-for-15) in four games last week, compiling four extra base hits with three doubles and a homer. Making his Western New England debut against Waynesburg last Friday, he turned in a 3-for-3 effort with a home run and three RBI.
Now 5-0 after posting a thrilling, 6-5 walkoff victory over Trinity College yesterday, the Golden Bears return to action tomorrow at 9:30 AM with a contest against Clarkson at the Chain O'Lakes Complex in Winter Haven, Fla.
