CSM Names Lee Big South Player of the Week

BUIES CREEK, N.C. –Junior Raven Lee (Battleboro, N.C.) was acknowledged for her performances from April 22-28 by being honored as College Sports Madness Big South Player of the Week. The Campbell first baseman was also acknowledged by the league office on April 29.

She aided the Camels to three non-conference victories, while compiled a .417 avg. and .917 slugging pct. Lee totaled two mulit-hit games, registering five hits including two home runs and six runs batted in.

The Battleboro, N.C., native is in elite company in the Campbell single-season charts, ranking second in both home runs (16) and RBI (61). She needs five long balls and 13 RBI to claim the top spot in each category.

In the first game at UNC Wilmington, Lee notched a pair of hits, both producing runs including a solo homer to leadoff the fifth.

She drove in a run on a single to aid a three-run first inning at Hampton, then came through with three insurance runs in the top of the seventh via a round tripper.

This is the 12th time that a Campbell player has been recognized by either the Big South or College Sports Madness for a weekly award.

Campbell host Longwood to end the regular season with the first game being broadcasted nationally on ESPN3 at 4 p.m. on Saturday (Note it is a time change). Prior to the final contest, seniors Brittany Arnn (Danville, Va.) and Sarah Forgacs (Cary, N.C.) will be honored for their contributions to the Camels' program.
