Concord's Joey Miller Named WVIAC Player of the Week

Posted: Updated:

Concord University baseball junior first baseman Joey Miller was named the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week after helping lead the Mountain Lions to a 3-1 weekend with a standout performance from the plate, the league office announced Monday.

Miller hit two home runs and had 11 RBI in Concord's series-victory over Indiana (Pa.). In addition to his power and run producing prowess displayed, Miller also batted .412 (7-for-17) with a .500 on-base percentage, a .824 slugging percentage and five runs scored.

He began the weekend with back-to-back one-home run, four-RBI games as Concord split a pair of games against IUP on Saturday (Feb. 23) before closing out the series with three more hits and three more RBI in Sunday's (Feb. 24) doubleheader sweep of the Crimson Hawks.

On the season, Miller is hitting .310 with 11 runs scored and WVIAC-highs of three home runs and 17 RBI.

Monday marked the fourth time this season that a Concord player has earned weekly recognition from the WVIAC. Bret Blevins (Feb. 11), Ryan Weatherholtz (Feb. 11) and Josh Wenger (Feb. 18) were all previously honored by the conference.

Concord (5-5) will continue its 10-game homestand with three games against Shepherd this weekend at Linda K. Epling Stadium in Beckley W. Va. CU and the Raiders will play a doubleheader Saturday starting at 12:00 p.m. and one game Sunday beginning at 11:00 a.m.
