Sophomore rightfielder Chris Coleman has been named the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA) Player of the Week by the Tennessee Baseball Report. In last weekend’s three-game conference series against Columbia State, Coleman collected six hits in 11 at-bats including three doubles, two home runs, and eight runs batted in. Coleman had both of his home runs in the Saluqis’ 10-4 win on March 7 including a grand slam.
