Central Connecticut freshman J.P.
Sportman was named the Akadema/Northeast Conference Rookie of
the Week, it was announced by the conference office on Monday.
Sportman and the Blue Devils took three of four from Mount St.
Mary's over the weekend, improving to 9-7 in league play.
Sportman reached base in all of Central Connecticut's five games last week, ending with an offensive eruption against Mount St. Mary's. Sportman, who accounted for a .529 on-base percentage during the five-game sample that resulted in four CCSU victories, went 5-for-7 with four RBI and three runs scored during the back end of the Blue Devils' four-game NEC series against the Mount.
The rookie shortstop produced an RBI single and came around to score during Central's five-run first inning in Game 3, an eventual 7-4 win. In the series finale, which Central took by an 11-3 score, Sportman went 4-for-4 with a RBI triple and a double.
For the week, Sportman batted .500 (8-for-16) with four RBI, four runs scored, three extra-base hits, a walk, and a stolen base. He went 2-for-4 with a double and run scored in a 7-5 mid-week win over MAAC member Iona. He reached base on a fifth-inning single in the series opener against the Mount before walking and stealing a base in Game 2.
