Tierney Named GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week

CORPUS CHRISTI – Brandon Tierney has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Tierney earns the award after helping the Islanders baseball team to a pair of wins last week by hitting .474 at the plate.

The senior came up with several big hits this week, as he had at least one in every game this week, while picking up multiple hits in three of the four contests to go along with five RBIs. His knocks in each game also extended his hit streak up to nine, the longest by any Islander this year.

In the midweek game against UTSA, Tierney picked up two RBIs against the Roadrunners with a late two-run single in the eighth to put the Islanders on the scoreboard.

Then, against Houston Baptist, the Arlington, Texas, native continued to swing a hot bat, especially in the final two games of the series, as he had back-to-back three-hit games Saturday and Sunday, tallying a combined three RBIs in those games.

The baseball team will return to Southland Conference action this week, as the Islanders will travel to Natchitoches, La., to take on Northwestern State for a three-game series, starting Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
