Atkins, a graduate student from Charlottesville, Va., played both ever-present baserunner and run-producer roles in helping nationally 11th-ranked Lynchburg post a 4-0 week against a trio of foes. Atkins slashed .643/.688/1.286 over the four contests, going 9-for-14 with five extra-base hits and 10 RBI with nine runs scored and a pair of stolen bases. He open with a 2-for-4 day in a 7-4 triumph over Hampden-Sydney. He doubled and scored a run against the Tigers. Atkins then reached base on on 4-of-5 occasions in a 14-6 mauling of 14th-ranked Christopher Newport University. He went 3-for-3 with a walk while blasting a two-run homer in the sixth to go with a RBI sac bunt to score a run in the third and a RBI double in the seventh. In a sweep (5-3, 13-1) of Eastern Mennonite, Atkins went 4-for-7 with a double in game one and a grand slam to power a six-RBI effort in game two. He posted his second three-hit game of the week in the latter contest. For the season, Atkins is slashing .378/.478/.662 with his SLG ranking sixth in the ODAC. He is third with five homeruns to go with six doubles and 22 RBI.
