BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - On Monday, April 12, LSU shortstop Jordan Thompson was named Southeastern Conference Co-Freshman of the Week after the Tigers won their first SEC series of the season over the Kentucky Wildcats.

This is the second time the product of Chula Vista, Calif., has earned the weekly award. During the weekend series against the Wildcats, Thompson hit .667. He was 8-for-12 with one triple, two RBI, and three runs scored.
