ATLANTA -Baseball's Nick Gatewood led the Panthers to a sweep of Arkansas State over the weekend to earn Georgia State Student-Athlete of the Week honors on Monday.
Gatewood was 8-for-15 with four home runs, 11 RBI and nine runs scored in four games, as the Panthers went 3-1 last week.
He hit .533 on the week, with a .619 on-base percentage and a 1.400 slugging percentage while catching 34 of the Panthers' 35 innings.
Gatewood began the week with back-to-back two-homer games. Against Furman, he hit two solo homers and a two-run single before he was intentionally walked twice.
In Friday's 12-3 win over Arkansas State, he hit a solo homer and a two-run blast, and he added a three-run double, a single and two walks in Saturday's 16-7 victory.
In Sunday's 3-2 win, Gatewood drove in one of the Panthers' three runs with a sacrifice fly, extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a single and was outstanding behind the plate, including a key block on a ball in the dirt with the tying run at third base in the eighth inning.
For the season, Gatewood is second in the Sun Belt in homers (11), third in batting average (.385) and third in RBI (35).
Georgia State will return to the diamond on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Georgia Tech.
