Senior Fred Wadsworth of the Francis Marion University baseball team has been named the McDonald's Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of April 1-7, 2019.

The Florence area McDonald’s Owner/Operators are proud to support the Francis Marion Student Athlete of the Week! Go Patriots!

Wadsworth batted .571 (8-for-14) with seven RBIs and three runs scored last week. Half of his hits went for extra-bases, as he belted two home runs, a triple, and a double for a 1.214 slugging percentage.

The Columbia native homered in both games of a doubleheader on Saturday at UNC Pembroke, his first two long balls as a Patriot, to help FMU to a twin bill sweep and series victory over the Braves.

Francis Marion (22-16, 13-11) returns home on Friday night (April 12) at 6 p.m. to begin a three-game Peach Belt Conference series against Columbus State University.
