Dimock Named SoCon Student-Athlete Of Week PDF Print

Appalachian State University baseball’s Gabe Dimock (Greensboro, N.C./Grimsley) has been named the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of

the Week, the league office announced on Wednesday.
Dimock hit safely in each of Appalachian State’s four games over the past week, good for a .400 average (6-for-15). He had multiple hits in the Mountaineers’ wins over Georgia Southern (2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored) last Friday and at UNC Asheville (2-for-5 with an RBI) on Tuesday night.
The senior catcher’s terrific week was made all the more impressive by the fact that, despite being a four-year member of the program, he did not see the first game action of his career until starting catcher Josh Zumbrook sustained an ankle injury versus Wofford on March 31. Since Zumbrook’s injury, Dimock has hit safely in six-straight games and is batting .400 (8-for-20) with three RBI. Appalachian is 5-1 with him in the lineup.
Off the field, Dimock carries a 3.84 grade point average as an exercise science major. He is Appalachian State’s sixth SoCon Student-Athlete of the Week this year, joining women’s basketball’s Courtney Freeman (Dec. 5), men’s basketball’s Nathan Healy (Jan. 16), baseball’s Jamie Nunn (Feb. 20), men’s track and field’s Stanley Broaden (Feb. 27) and women’s track and field’s Amanda Hamilton (April 3). In all, Mountaineers have claimed 20 percent of the awards this year (6-of-30).
Dimock and the Mountaineers (18-10, 8-6 SoCon), winners of eight of their last 11 games overall, return to action on Friday when they open a three-game SoCon series at UNC Greensboro (16-17, 4-8 SoCon). First pitch is set for 6 p.m. at UNCG Baseball Stadium in Greensboro, N.C.
