Player of the Week: Andre Lipcius, Tennessee
Tennessee's Andre Lipcius led the Vols in nearly every major statistical category for the week while helping Tennessee secure an important series win on the road at Florida. Six of Lipcius' eight hits on the week came against the Gators, including a four-hit performance in Saturday's 8-7 victory. Lipcius had two doubles, a home run, three RBI and scored two runs in the game, finishing a triple shy of the cycle. The four hits tied a career high. He posted three multi-hit games for the week and leads the team with 17 multi-hit games this season.

Co-Pitcher of the Week: Drake Fellows, Vanderbilt
Vanderbilt's Drake Fellows recorded his SEC-best 10th victory and 20th career win Friday vs. No. 21 Missouri. He struck out an SEC-career best 11 batters and limited Missouri to a .167 average in seven frames and vaulted Vandy to its 13th straight win and 10th in SEC games, both the longest stretches since 2013. Fellows has fanned seven-plus batters in seven of his last 12 starts.

Co-Pitcher of the Week: Tony Locey, Georgia
In his second career SEC Friday Night start, Georgia's Tony Locey tied his career high with 7.0 IP and only one walk with 10 strikeouts in an 11-2 road win over Auburn. He held the Tigers to a .160 batting average, allowing just four hits and two runs over seven innings. Locey helped Georgia post its first series win over Auburn since 2012 and first in Auburn since 2006.

Freshman of the Week: Brett Kerry, South Carolina
South Carolina's Brett Kerry was dominant in the back of the bullpen to help the Gamecocks clinch a series win over Kentucky. The freshman needed just seven pitches in the ninth on Friday, recording a strikeout to pick up the save in the 5-4 victory. Then on Saturday, Kerry was asked to pitch the final three frames and struck out five of his 10 batters faced. The only hit he gave up was on an infield single in the ninth.
