HOEY NAMED LITTLE EAST
ROOKIE OF THE WEEK

Providence, RI-Rhode Island College freshman David Hoey (Lincoln, RI) was named the Little East Conference Rookie of the Week for his performance in one appearance. It is the first time this season he's received this accolade.

 

 

 

 Hoey earned a 6-2 victory over UMass Boston in his only start of the week as Rhode Island College earned the No. 3 seed in the upcoming conference baseball championship. The freshman allowed just one earned run on five hits, while striking out one.

 

 

 

For the season, he has appeared in nine games, starting four of them. Hoey is 2-2 with a 5.57 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 32.1 innings of work.

 

Head Coach Scott Virgulak’s team is 21-16 overall and 8-6 in the Little East. RIC will face UMass Boston in the first round of the LEC Tournament.
