UTM baseball duo
honored by OVC

UT Martin baseball players Wes Patterson and Coty Green were honored Monday by the Ohio Valley Conference.
Patterson, a sophomore first baseman from Memphis, was named the league’s Player of the Week, while Green, a junior right-hander was named the conference’s Co-Pitcher of the Week.
The two players were honored for their efforts last week against Belmont and Jacksonville State. The Skyhawks dropped the non-conference doubleheader against host Belmont but closed out the 2009 season by sweeping the three-game series from host Jacksonville State.
In five games this past week, Patterson hit .632 (12-for-19) with six runs scored, two home runs and seven RBI. Patterson hit safely in every game last week and scored a run in four of five contests.
Green tossed his fourth complete game of the season and picked up his fifth win of the year on Friday at Jacksonville State.
