DALLAS (NCBWA) – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association released its weekly NCAA Division II National Players of the Week awards for the period ending March 25th. Nova Southeastern senior outfielder Areo Regoli is the National Hitter of the Week while Southern New Hampshire junior lefthander Tim Flight is the National Pitcher of the Week.

Areo Regoli (Homestead, Fla.) batted .562 with eight runs and 10 RBI to lead the Sharks to a 4-1 weekly mark, including a conference series win over Eckerd. Posting a .600 OBP, Regoli hit safely in each game and tallied multiple hits in three. He amassed a 1.500 slugging percentage with five home runs.

He was also 2-for-2 in stolen base attempts in the contest. In four outings, Regoli did not commit an error in the field.
