CHARLESTON, S.C. - Junior men's baseball player Christian Powell (Greenwood, S.C.) and freshman track & field thrower Tiffany Sisk (Easley, S.C.) earned College of Charleston Student-Athlete of the Week honors sponsored by Piggly Wiggly for the week of March 12.

Powell pitched eight innings and allowed no runs in a 4-3 win over Furman on Saturday. The All-Conference player tied his career high with eight strikeouts as he earned his third win of the season and retired the last 13 batters in a row that he faced. Powell lowered his season ERA to 0.70 which currently leads the Southern Conference and ranks 22nd in the NCAA.

Sisk set a new school record in the shot put as she took first place in the CofC Palmetto Classic last weekend. Sisk threw a distance of 13.99 meters which was over a meter longer than any other competitor, and bested the previous school record of 12.51 meters, set in 2006 by Chakosha Lance.
