Snyder wins award after phenomenal weekend

Cougar Sports Services

Chris Snyder was named the Conference USA Hitter of the Week on Monday. The junior catcher helped lead the Cougars to a 2-1 record
at the Astros College Classic last weekend.

The Houston native joined senior left-handed pitcher Keith Whatley on the Astros College Classic All-Tournament Team.

Snyder was easily the team's best hitter in three games against ranked opponents. He batted .571 with a double, a home run, three runs
batted in and two runs against No. 16 Baylor, No. 9 Texas and No. 30 Texas A&M.

His home run broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the ninth inning and lifted the Cougars to a 3-2 win over Baylor, snapping a four-game losing
streak to the Bears.

He continued his offensive performance against Texas the next night by reaching base safely in five plate appearances, thanks to two hits,
two walks and a hit by pitch. In all, Snyder reached base safely in eight consecutive plate appearances at one point during the tournament.

He also played errorless defense behind the plate in 26 total chances.
