Earp And Kincaid Earn WVIAC Honors

PRINCETON, W. Va. -- Jimmy Earp and David Bryan of Alderson-Broaddus have been named the co-WVIAC Players of the Week. Tyler Kincaid has been named the WVIAC Pitcher of the Week, as announced by the league office.

Earp, a senior centerfielder, went six-for-eight in the doubleheader split with WV Wesleyan. He garnered a three-of-four effort in each contest. His RBI in the first game came in the seventh inning, allowing the Falcons to stretch the lead they had just obtained to 5-3. The Beckley, W. Va., native also had one RBI in each contest.

Kincaid, a junior left-handed hurler, registered a complete-game victory over WV Wesleyan, helping the Falcons secure a spot in the upcoming WVIAC Tournament. He gave up three runs, but only two were earned, against the South Division champions. For the game, the Elkton, Md., native scattered seven hits and struck out four. Kincaid also got out of a jam as two runners were on base with two away in the bottom of the seventh before he picked up the victory.

Earp is the second FSU player to be named WVIAC player of the week this season. FSU has had a player named WVIAC pitcher of the week in each of the last four weeks. Kincaid has been named WVIAC pitcher of the week two times in the last four weeks.

Other top performers: Paul Gonzales (Alderson-Broaddus), Josh Logan (Seton Hill), J.R. Tenney (WV Wesleyan)   

The Falcons will begin pool play in the WVIAC tournament on Thursday afternoon against WV Wesleyan. The first pitch will be at 4:30 p.m. in Johnstown, Pa.
