Three Honored with Weekly Recognition
February 4, 2013 - Three Brevard Community College student-athletes share honors as BCC Student-Athlete of the Week for the week ending Feb. 3.
They are sophomore baseball designated hitter David King, sophomore basketball forward Aldor Kola and sophomore softball first baseman Kat Ammons.
King went 6-for-18 from the plate in BCC's four games — three of them victories — registering four runs batted in and hitting a home run.
"King had an outstanding week," BCC head coach Jeff Tam said. "His 5-for-6 effort in our 9-5 victory over St. Johns River on Tuesday set the tone. Also, his home run against Central Florida Community College was a demonstration of his power.
"Now we just have to keep David putting good swings on the baseball and not try to do too much, for him less effort is more results."
Kola sank two key three-point baskets and a two-point basket to get BCC back into its crucial Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference victory over Miami Dade College on Saturday.
Kola finished with 10 points as BCC rallied and pulled away for a 73-59 victory that enabled it to keep pace with Palm Beach State College in the fight for first place.
"Aldor is very deserving of the Athlete of the Week award, coming off the bench with 10 critical points in our victory over Miami Dade," BCC head coach Jeremy Shulman said. "Aldor was absolutely huge for us."
Ammons had a big day at the plate for BCC over the last two games of the Lady Titans' three games on Saturday at the Triple Crown College Classic in St. Augustine. She rapped out four hits and recorded nine total runs batted in. Ammons smacked two home runs against Aiken (S.C.) Technical College, a grand slam and a two-run shot.
"Kat was nine for 23 for a .391 average for the week," BCC assistant coach Bob Yanczewski said. "She had five runs scored, 10 runs batted in with two doubles and two home runs including a grand slam. Her offensive production and her leadership as a sophomore are vital to our success."
