Highlanders sweep conference Player of the Week awards

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

McLennan Highlanders Nic Motley and Jase Embry teamed up to dominate the North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference Baseball Player of the Week awards for March 12-18.

Motley, a sophomore catcher/designated hitter, was named the Position Player of the Week for his outstanding performance in McLennan's conference series with Ranger. For the week, he hit .416 with a double and three home runs including a grand slam in the Highlanders’ 16-0 rout of the Rangers. He recorded 10 RBIs and scored three runs in the four-game series.

For the second consecutive week, Jase Embry claimed the Pitcher of the Week honor. The freshman from Axtell had a no-hitter going into the top of the seventh inning in the 1-0 win over Ranger. He allowed just one hit and one walk in 6 1/3 innings of work while striking out four Rangers.
