CHARLESTON, S.C. - Senior baseball player Josh Renfro (Bradenton, Fla.) and junior women's tennis player Christin Newman (Greensboro, N.C.) earned College of Charleston Student-Athlete of the Week honors sponsored by Piggly Wiggly for the week of March 19.

Renfro pitched a complete game in a 5-1 win over Wofford last Friday night. The senior southpaw recorded a career-best 11 strikeouts which is currently the most by SoCon pitcher this season. He allowed just four hits and one run in the win.

Newman picked up three straight-set wins at the top position for CofC, including a 6-1, 6-2 victory over CSU's Olga Makhova, the two-time defending Big South Player of the Year. Newman also won three doubles victories as she teamed with her sister, Caroline. Christin was named the SoCon Women's Tennis Player of the Week.
