SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- For the second time this season, the Southern Conference has named Mercer catcher and designated hitter JT Thomas the player of the week on Monday.

The junior batted .444 with 13 RBIs and three home runs in four games last week. The highlight of Thomas' week came in the series finale against VMI in which he went 4-for-5 with a home run and six RBIs.

Thomas is having a great first season with the Bears, tied for second on the team in home runs with 12 while leading the team with 48 RBIs.

Thomas and Mercer are back in action on Tuesday when they travel to Atlanta to take on Georgia Tech.
