Sinclair Community College | Baseball Player of the Week
Sears went on a tear to earn his third weekly conference award. He’s now been selected in each month (Feb. 18, March 18, Apr. 15) by the league office. His latest performance was highlighted by 14 RBI during a 5-1 week for Sinclair. He went 9-for-17 at the dish, cranking three homeruns and a triple to slug 1.059. Sears registered at least one hit and one RBI in all six contests, and scored a run in five. He exploded for two dingers and seven RBI during a 14-0 victory over Owens.

Cuyahoga Community College | Softball Player of the Week
Rivera was phenomenal during an unbeaten week for Cuyahoga. She wrecked the competition for 11 hits in 15 at-bats (.733), including four doubles to slug 1.000 in five games played. Rivera was directly responsible for 16 runs in total, scoring nine and driving in seven more. She added four stolen bases and three walks to her already sensational stat line. Rivera posted no less than two hits in all five contests. Four different Cuyahoga players have won the last four OCCAC weekly awards.

Cuyahoga Community College | Baseball Pitcher of the Week
Begue is a first time winner for 2019, but third in his career. He blanked conference foe Clark State for five innings and struck out 14 batters before the 10-0 run-rule was complete. Begue surrendered a lone hit while issuing no walks in the sizzling performance.

Sinclair Community College | Softball Pitcher of the Week
Teserovitch shut out Owens in a 5-inning complete game. Only two batters reached base (one hit, one walk) and four were retired via the strikeout. Teserovitch is the third different Sinclair pitcher to receive the laurel in 2019.
