UNCG’s Christian Wolfe ends up batting .421 and Spartans close out season with win over The Citadel, 7-4 on ‘Senior Day’
Info from the UNCG Spartans athletics web site and Nin Marrero(Western Guilford HS) picked up another hit and he finished the day going 1-4, as the Spartans’ second baseman….
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Senior outfielder Christian Wolfe became the UNCG single season record holder in batting average and redshirt junior outfielder Cole Harrison recorded the game-winning hit in his last game as a Spartan as the UNCG Baseball Team scored six runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to pick up a 7-4 Southern Conference victory over The Citadel in the season finale for the Blue and Gold.
The Spartans (24-31, 11-19 SoCon) picked up their third league series victory of 2013 and ended head coach Link Jarrett’s first season with the program with a series win over the SoCon’s then second-place squad. The series loss bumped the Bulldogs down to the No. 4 seed for next week’s league tournament.
Wolfe surpassed Ryan Gordon’s 2003 season batting average mark of .416 as he was 3-for-4 in Saturday’s contest to end his campaign at an impressive .421. That average should be good enough to pace the Southern Conference in 2013 and Wolfe should become the first Spartan to do so since Jermaine Mitchell led the circuit with a .397 total in 2006.
