John Koon Named MEC Baseball Player of the Week

BRIDGEPORT -- West Virginia Wesleyan's John Koon is the Mountain East Conference Player of the Week, while Urbana's Jackson Everman is the league's Pitcher of the Week.

Koon, a senior from Bridgeport, W.Va., hit .533 (16-for-30) in eight games for the Bobcats last week. He drove in 13 runs and belted four home runs on the week, including a walk-off shot against Wheeling Jesuit. Koon had at least one hit in all eight contests, and had five multi-hit games.

Everman, a senior from Hilliard, Ohio, went 2-0 on the hill last week with a 0.69 ERA. He allowed just one unearned run on four hits in a complete game win over Concord. In his start over the weekend against West Virginia State, Everman allowed one earned run on five hits in six innings of work in a win over the Yellow Jackets. The two wins made him the school's all-time leader in that category since in its Division II era.
