Louisiana Tech third baseman Hunter Wells was named the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Hitter of the Week following an 11-for-18 weekend at the plate at Rice.

Wells batted a blistering .611 in the four-game series sweep against the Owls, tallying eight runs scored, seven RBIs and a home run as the No. 13 Bulldogs outscored Rice 46-16 over the weekend.

Wells opened the weekend and capped off the weekend with four-hit performances, going 4-for-5 with two RBIs and a double on Friday and then putting together a 4-for-6 day at the plate on Sunday with a double and a team-best four runs scored.

Wells also shined during Tech’s doubleheader sweep on Saturday, going 1-for-3 in game one with a run scored. In game two, Wells blasted an opposite field, three-run homer to highlight his two-hit, five RBIs performance.

The Katy, Texas native also extended his hitting streak to 17 games on Sunday. Wells is batting .431 with 32 total bases in just 12 C-USA games so far this season.?

LA Tech’s four-game sweep of the Owls marked its first road sweep of Rice in program history. The Bulldogs (24-7, 10-2 C-USA) will host Southern Miss this weekend for a matchup between the top two teams in the C-USA’s West Division standings.?Wells joins Louisiana Tech outfielder Adarius Myers as the first two LSWA Hitter of the Week honorees this season.
