ULM's Suire Named SBC Player Of The Week

After terrorizing Nicholls State pitching this past weekend, Kyle Suire picked up some recognition today. The senior was named Sun Belt Conference Player of The Week after hitting .625 with 17 total bases and 7 RBI's.

Kyle Suire dominated the opening weekend finishing with a .625 (10- for-16) batting average, 7 RBIs, six runs scored, 17 total bases and two home runs. Suire hit the game winner in the top of the 10th inning of the season opener lifting ULM to a 1-0 victory.

The senior's two home runs are even more remarkable when you consider only five homers were hit out of Didier Field last season. His slugging percentage for the weekend was 1.063 and he also stole a base as the Warhawks opened the season with a three-game sweep on the road.

He finished the weekend recording a hit in 10 of his last 13 at-bats, including a 5-for-6 performance in the fi nale. Suire was a part of a back-to-back-to-back home run display that the Warhawks put on.
