GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG freshman catcher Lindsay Thomas (Irvine, Calif./Northwood) 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.
Thomas led the Spartans to a perfect 4-0 weekend after defeating Dayton, 6-4, Hartford, 3-1, Monmouth, 5-2, and Virginia, 2-1. UNCG is 15-2 for the first time in school history. Thomas continued her solid play after hitting a walk-off three-run home run to defeat Dayton, 6-4, Friday afternoon.
The Irvine, Calif. native, gave UNCG a 2-0 lead over Monmouth with a two-run blast in the first inning. In the final game of the weekend, Thomas ended Melanie Mitchell's (Virginia) perfect game in the fourth inning with a solo home run to tie the game at 1-1.
Thomas finished the weekend with three home runs, 7 RBI, a .357 batting average and a team-leading 1.000 slugging percentage. UNCG returns to the field to play at Virginia Tech Tuesday March 5 at 6 p.m.
