Christian Wolfe Named BCBSNC Blue Chip Performer
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Senior outfielder Christian Wolfe (Bel Air, Md./John Carroll) has been named this week's Blue Chip Performer sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. The Blue Chip Performer will be chosen weekly from all sports in season and will run throughout the 2012-13 UNCG athletics campaign.
Wolfe led the UNCG baseball team to a 3-1 week, including a series victory at Samford over the weekend. It was the second-straight series win over the Bulldogs in Birmingham. He hit .500 during the three games (7-for-14) with five RBIs, five runs scored, a double and a home run.
In the Saturday contest, Wolfe was 3-for-5, driving in four runs in the final two innings as the Spartans scored seven late runs to pick up an 8-3 victory. He was also 2-for-4 at the dish in the series finale which UNCG won 7-6.
Wolfe currently leads the Southern Conference in batting average (.409) and has hit safely in 24 of his last 25 games. Among league players, he currently ranks second in hits, fourth in double and on base percentage and eighth in slugging percentage and total bases.
The Blue and Gold will take the week off for final exams before heading to Greenville, S.C. this weekend for a key series at Furman.
