Enumclaw native Bryce Peterson was named the Sunshine State Conference Baseball Player of the Week, league officials announced recently.

It was Peterson’s first Player of the Week Award and came early during his first season suiting up for Rollins College.

The college, located in Winter Park, Florida, competes at the NCAA Division II level.

Peterson earned the award by leading Rollins to a 5-0 record during the week. He had 10 hits during the five-game span, including four doubles, two triples and a home run to go along with 12 RBI. He also scored five runs and earned two walks in the box.

For the season, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Peterson was batting an impressive .403 through 19 games. He had totaled 27 hits during the spring campaign, with five doubles, three triples, and seven home runs. His 25 RBI had him ranked No. 6 in the Sunshine State Conference.

The former Enumclaw High Hornet first took his baseball skills for two seasons to Everett Community College, where he landed on the all-region and all-American teams, as selected by the American Baseball Coaches Association. That netted the outfielder the opportunity to sign with the University of Central Florida.

Following a season in Orlando, he transferred to Rollins College.

Rollins, with a student enrollment of almost 3,000, is part of the 11-team Sunshine State Conference. All members are based in Florida.

At Enumclaw High, Peterson was a three-time all-conference selection and, following his senior season in 2014, was named to the all-state team.
