CHARLESTON, S.C. - Junior right handed pitcher Stephanie Saylors (Easley, S.C.) and senior men's tennis player Mickael Trintignac (Le Cannet, France) earned College of Charleston Student-Athlete of the Week honors sponsored by Piggly Wiggly for the week ending April 9.
Trintignac led the College of Charleston to a 6-1 victory over Furman to remain a perfect 6-0 in Southern Conference action on April 6. Trintignac was a winner at No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles versus the Paladins. He defeated No. 117-ranked Andrew Mellow in straight sets, 6-3, 7-5, to improve to 10-5 overall and 4-2 in league play at the top of the order as well as combined with teammate Kyle Parker for an 8-5 win over Alex Christ and Joel Cook. The Cougars' top tandem own a team-best 13-2 overall mark in doubles, while CofC remains the only unbeaten team in the SoCon. They are currently on a seven-match win streak.
Saylors earned SoCon Pitcher of the Week honors for the third time this season after throwing two complete-game shutouts in the circle against Furman this past weekend. In her 14 innings of work, Saylors sat down 15 hitters on strikes and only allowed six hits as she kept the Paladins off the scoreboard for a 0.00 ERA. Saylors limited the Paladins to a .122 batting average and didn't allow a single extra-base hit. She has now thrown complete games in her last 10 consecutive outings and has only allowed four total runs in her last 49 innings of work.
