Bullock named SoCon Baseball Player of the Week

Western Carolina's Andrew Bullock has been named the Southern Conference player of the week, for all games May 9-15.

Bullock hit .545, slugged 1.455 and had an on-base percentage of .688 as the Catamounts took on Georgia and won a series from league-leading UNCG last week.

Bullock hit three home runs and a double, drew five walks, scored five runs and recorded seven RBIs. He opened the series Friday against UNCG by reaching base four times, drawing two walks and hitting a first-inning single and a three-run homer in the fifth as the Catamounts won 8-5. The next day, the Chesapeake, Va., native was 3-for-4 with three RBIs and four runs scored, hitting two more home runs and a double as WCU clinched the series with a 19-8 win. Bullock was on base three more times Sunday, walking twice and hitting an RBI single in the ninth.

Chancellor Belcher diagnosed with brain tumor


The tumor is affecting Dr. Belcher's speech and expression, according to the email he sent out to the campus Thursday morning.

“The resulting condition is called expressive aphasia. At this point, I do not have many specifics to share; however, I am optimistic and in the process of engaging with medical specialists to learn more,” Belcher wrote in the email.

“I felt it important that you hear this news immediately and directly from me. I know that you care deeply for our university and I also know that you care for me personally. I am sure that this news will prompt many questions, many of which I cannot currently answer.”

“Provost Alison Morrison-Shetlar will be my primary representative when I am unavailable. That said, I am fully committed as chancellor of Western Carolina University and will fulfill my executive responsibilities even when I am not on campus. That has not changed,” Belcher wrote.
