Lee Stoops
Baseball

This week’s featured athlete is Lee Stoops, a senior baseball player from Seattle, Washington. Stoops transferred to CCC from Linn-Benton Community College last season, and immediately made an impact with his new team. As a junior, Stoops was third on the team in batting average, hitting .304 in 161 plate appearances. He had 49 hits, including 10 doubles, 1 triple, and 2 homeruns.

This season, he leads the team with a .375 batting average and has a slugging percentage of .893. He is on pace to shatter his hit totals from last season. He already has 21 hits including 5 doubles, and 8 homeruns. His 8 homeruns lands him at #1 in the NAIA in that category. Last weekend against Robert Morris University and McPherson College Lee went 5 for 16 with 4 homeruns and 8 RBI. He had back to back homeruns in the Mac game to help propel the Tigers to a 7-6 win over their crosstown rival.

When he is not playing baseball, Lee likes flying, playing pool, bowling and hanging out with his friends. Lee and his teammates are currently 5-15 on the season. They have five home games this week against University of St. Mary on Tuesday, and Central Baptist College Friday and Saturday.
