Aldrich helped the Cougars (31-13, 19-8) to a 2-1 weekend, taking the series over Western Carolina. The preseason first team All-American had a career game on Friday, hitting three home runs and driving in all five Cougar runs in the 5-4 victory. Aldrich's eighth-inning two-run homer broke a tie game and proved to be the eventual game-winner.
Aldrich finished the week batting .500 (4-for-8) to go along with four walks for an on-base percentage of .667 and a slugging percentage of 1.625.
The Southern Conference selected Samford's Saxon Butler as the other Co-Player of the Week while Elon's Spencer Medick earned Pitcher of the Week honors.
The Cougars will travel to Clemson for a non-conference weekend series starting next Saturday, May 5 at 6:30 p.m.
