GREENSBORO, N.C. - Wake Forest All-American centerfielder Cory Sullivan shares ACC Player of the Week honors with Virginia's Hunter Wyant, the conference announced Monday. Clemson's Matt Henrie earned the Pitcher of the Week award.

Sullivan, a senior from Pittsburgh, Pa., led the Deacons to a 4-1 week by hitting 11-of-21 (.524) with five walks, ten runs, nine RBI and two stolen bases against Appalachian State, Virginia Commonwealth and a three-game sweep at North Carolina.

In the Demon Deacons' three wins over the Tar Heels, Sullivan was 8-of-13 (.615) with seven runs and six RBI. He also made his first career start on the mound on Sunday and picked up the win after throwing seven innings and allowing just one run on three hits. In the same game, Sullivan went 4-for-5 at the plate with a double and a home run.

At 17-4 overall and 5-1 in the ACC, Wake Forest is off to its best start through 21 games in the 14-year George Greer era that includes two ACC Championships. The Demon Deacons are scheduled to host Charlotte on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. before visiting East Carolina on Wednesday. This weekend, Wake Forest will entertain 14th-ranked Clemson at Hooks Stadium for a three-game set starting Friday afternoon at 3:00 p.m.
