UAM’s Poindexter receives regional honor

Arkansas-Monticello baseball center fielder D’Marco Poindexter was honored as the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Central Region Hitter of the Week on Thursday.

The award came three days after the Great American Conference named the Springhill, La., product its player of the week.

Poindexter went 7-for-18 in six games, hitting a go-ahead two-run double against Central Missouri and smashing a three-run, walk-off home run against Henderson State in Houston. Poindexter has singled in each of his last three at-bats.

No. 15-ranked UAM (5-1) will open GAC play at Northwestern Oklahoma State on Saturday.
