Trevor Edwards Named BCBSNC Blue Chip Performer
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Senior infielder Trevor Edwards (Toronto, Ontario/Taddle Creek Academy) has been named this week's Blue Chip Performer sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. The Blue Chip Performer is chosen weekly from all sports in season and runs throughout the 2012-13 UNCG Athletics campaign.
Edwards ended his career with the UNCG baseball team in style, hitting a three-run walkoff home run in the bottom of the ninth inning of Saturday's 13-11 victory over The Citadel at the UNCG Baseball Stadium. He ended the game with two hits, four RBIs, a double, a home run and a run scored.
Edwards' efforts helped the Spartans claim the series over the then second-place Bulldogs, dropping The Citadel from the No. 2 seed to the No. 4 seed in this week's league tournament. The series win also marked the fifth victory in the last six games over the Bulldogs in Greensboro.
With the 2013 season concluded, Edwards finishes ranked first on the squad in home runs (13) and runs batted in 48 while ending up third in doubles (14) and runs scored (42). His 13 home runs are tied for the sixth most in a single season in the program annals.
In the latest release of the national statistical rankings, Edwards is 11th in sacrifice flies, 23rd in home runs and 24th in home runs per game.
