PITTSBURGH--Senior Shane Carney (Marengo, Ohio/Highland High School) has made Adrian College Club Baseball history this week as the first Bulldog to earn National Club Baseball Association (NCBA) Division 3 Player of the Week accolades.

In two home games against Division 1 opponent Central Michigan University on Saturday, Oct. 21, the outfielder provided much of the Adrian offense by going 4-for-6 with a double, four runs batted in and he scored a run. The Bulldogs split with the Chippewas, bouncing back for an 8-4 victory after dropping the opener 6-3.

"I think it is a great accomplishment not only for Shane but for the program," said first-year head coach Brent Greenwood '14. "We have played well to start the season and Shane has been a big part of it."

For the season, Carney is batting .545 and slugging .727 to go along with a .583 on-base percentage to help Adrian to an 8-4 record overall and 2-0 conference mark in its first season of competition.

The NCBA, founded in 2000, is the national body that governs club baseball at colleges and universities in the United States, providing a national structure for non-varsity teams at the NCAA and NAIA levels.
