Palmetto State Baseball team of the week, March 27-April 2: North Greenville

North Greenville (4-0 for the week)
(beat Montreat; went 3-0 vs. Erskine)

There were several teams worthy of the honor this week, but a solid bounce-back week by North Greenville was the tie-breaker.

Seven days ago the Crusaders were coming off an excruciating week. They'd gone 0-4 against ranked teams, including a pair of walk-off losses at Conference Carolinas leader Mount Olive.

Coach Landon Powell's team rebounded in style this week, beating Montreat in midweek and sweeping Erskine, the second-place team in Conference Carolinas.

The Crusaders return to action with a Tuesday home game against Coker.
