Athletes of the Week

| SC Living | June 15, 2017

Chris Devery

The first Colorado State University ThunderWolves player to ever be named National Hitter of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, Chris Devery is team royalty. He made the “triple crown” when he added that distinction to Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Player of the Week and NCBWA Player of the Week titles — also firsts for him.

A graduate of Saugus High School, Devery batted .556 in the four-game series against Adams State University with two home runs, four doubles and a triple. He batted 16 RBIs and had an on-base percentage of .579.

A junior at CSU-Pueblo, Devery ended the season with 34 RBIs and batted an average of .387 for the year, leading his teammates.

Chandra Eigenberger

A member of the SCV Blue Heat, Chandra Eigenberger scored the lone goal in the Blue Heat’s 1-0 victory over the Calgary Foothills. The goal is the first in the season for Eigenberger, and keeps SCV tied for first in the United Women’s Soccer West Conference with Real Salt Lake Women.

“Chandra scored the game winner in Canada. It was a very difficult game and she came up huge for us,” said Blue Heat Coach Guilherme Mitrovitch. “Her speed and skill on the ball is very difficult to deal with. She has a powerful strike, plus she is one of our set piece specialists. She has a wonderful delivery on her crosses.”
