The sophomore from Miami, Fla. tallied eight hits in 10 at bats during the Catawba Valley Community College baseball team’s season-opening series this past weekend against USC Union.

Of Marcos’ eight hits, three of them were triples. He also stole a base and scored a team-high five runs, helping the Red Hawks take three out of four games during the weekend.

The 5-foot-9 outfielder finished the weekend with a .857 on-base percentage and a 1.400 slugging percentage — the most of any Catawba Valley baseball player with at least 10 at bats.
