By AccessWDUN Staff

ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia's Charlie Condon has been named the Dick Howser Trophy Player of the Month for February, according to an announcement by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.
 
The University of Georgia sophomore third baseman/outfielder had a prolific nine-game stretch to open the 2024 season. He hit .639 (23-for-36) with seven homers and 13 RBI. Condon scored 17 runs, had five doubles and a triple and drew eight walks for a .696 on-base percentage. He led the Southeastern Conference in homers, runs and total bases in the month and had seven more hits than the next closest player. He cranked a school-record three home runs versus Michigan State to close the month, which followed an SEC Player of the Week nod in week two. Recently, he belted an eighth homer in a two-game sweep over Georgia Tech. He is hitting .568 through the first 11 games of the year and that ranks third nationally while his 1.273 slugging percentage is second nationally. Last season, Condon, hit .386 with 10 doubles, one triple, 25 homers and 67 RBI.

Also, the NCBWA announced LSU right-hander Luke Holman as its national pitcher of the month. A native of Sinking Springs, Penn., Holman went 2-0, 0.00 ERA with 18 strikeouts and one walk in 12.1 Innings.

This marks the ninth consecutive year that the NCBWA has honored a hitter and pitcher of the month. Founded in 1962, the NCBWA is dedicated to the advancement of college baseball. Membership is open to writers, broadcasters and publicists of the sport. For more information about the NCBWA, visit the association's official Web site, www.ncbwa.com.
