This Week in JU Athletics (Feb. 28-Mar. 6)
JU baseball player Steven Eagerton was tabbed as the Community First Credit Union “Athlete of the Week” to kick off the next edition of This Week in JU Athletics.

This Week in JU Athletics is a weekly feature to give fans the top five items of the week and a full list of all the athletic events so they can cheer the Dolphins on to victory.


Community First Credit Union "Athlete of the Week" - Steven Eagerton: Junior right-hander Steven Eagerton was named the Community First Credit Union "Athlete of the Week" by producing a solid pitching performance to help the Dolphins down Samford, 4-0, in game one of a twin bill on Feb. 26. Eagerton (1-0) got the win after scattering eight hits while walking two with a strikeout in seven innings. He has a staff-best 0.69 ERA through two appearances.
Basketball competes in A-Sun Tournament - A shot at playing in March is on the line for the JU men’s & women’s basketball teams as they compete at the General Shale Brick A-Sun Championship on Thursday in Macon, Ga. Both teams will face UNF in the first round with the women going at noon and the men tipping off at 2:30 p.m. Fans can watch for free on A-Sun.tv. The men’s team swept UNF this season and the women have dropped their last four games to the Ospreys, including in the conference semifinals last season.

JU plays College of Charleston tomorrow at 4 p.m. before hosting Wagner in a three-game series starting Friday at 6:30 p.m. The Dolphins enter the week with a 6-2 mark after sweeping a four-game set with Samford.
Track & field opens outdoor season at UNF - Less than two weeks off of their sixth straight A-Sun indoor title, the Dolphins are back to work with the two-day UNF Spring Break Open in Jacksonville to begin the outdoor season. The meet will be the first of three for the Dolphins in the month of March.

Women’s Tennis looks to stay perfect - The women’s team will look to improve on their 6-0 record at home this week. They host Presbyterian tomorrow at 2 p.m. before starting the A-Sun slate against ETSU on Saturday at 10 a.m. Both matches are free to the public.
