Povse Named BCBSNC Blue Chip Performer
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Junior RHP Max Povse (Cary, N.C./Green Hope) has been named this week’s Blue Chip Performer sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. This is the second year that BCBSNC has sponsored the Blue Chip Performer award, which is chosen weekly from all sports in season and runs throughout the 2013-14 UNCG Athletics season.
Povse threw the second complete game of his career Sunday against Big Ten member Minnesota as the Spartans downed the Golden Gophers 4-1 at the Chanticleer Classic inside TicketReturn.com Field. His first complete game occurred last season in a 12-0 UNCG victory at College of Charleston in a Southern Conference contest.
In going the distance, Povse gave up just one run on five hits with two walks and three strikeouts. He retired the final eight batters of the contest and limited Minnesota to just five singles. Povse threw 117 pitches over the nine innings and faced 34 batters in the game.
UNCG wraps up the Chanticleer Classic Monday with a single contest against host Coastal Carolina at 4 p.m.
