Halcomb collects WCC honor

Tue., May 29, 2012

Gonzaga’s Steven Halcomb capped his junior season in impressive style.

The shortstop hit safely in all four of the Bulldogs’ final games, including an 11-for-16 (.688) effort in a three-game series at BYU, and garnered the West Coast Conference’s final Player of the Week honor.

Halcomb scored seven runs, drove in five and had three extra base hits as the Zags took two of three from the Cougars. It left him with a .297 season batting average with eight doubles, 32 runs scored and 30 RBIs.

It was the first WCC weekly honor for Halcomb in his career, and the fifth this season for a GU player.

Devin Greco’s grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning with no one out carried top-seeded and No. 1-ranked Louisiana State Shreveport to a 7-3 win over host Lewis-Clark State in a loser-out game Monday in Lewiston.

It ended the Warriors’ season at 42-14.

LCSC scored on Jordan Payne’s bases-loaded, bloop single down the left field line in the second inning and a Connor Moore single to left in the fourth.
