HADLEY, Mass. -- Bates College sophomore catcher Gordy Webb earned NESCAC Baseball Player of the Week honors, the New England Small College Athletic Conference announced on Monday.

Webb (Hampden, Maine) batted .611 (11-for-18) with a .632 on-base percentage and a 1.111 slugging mark while not committing an error behind the plate during the Bobcats’ 3-2 week. He hit four doubles, a triple and a home run while scoring seven runs and driving in four. During Sunday’s doubleheader sweep of Colby, Webb combined to go 5-for-8 from the dish with two doubles, one home run, four runs and four RBIs. He also threw out three runners on seven stolen base attempts on the week.

Webb is the first Bobcat to earn NESCAC Baseball Player of the Week honors since Drew McKenna '04 earned the honor on April 12, 2004.

Webb and the Bobcats play next at Thomas College on Wednesday at 3 p.m.
