No. 4 Pearl River soccer’s Harper Baggett (Ocean Springs) has been named the Mississippi Association of Community Colleges Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the second straight week, the league recently announced.

The 6-foot-2 freshman was a huge part of the Wildcats’ success in last week’s 4-0 win at Southwest and 3-1 victory against then No. 18 Meridian.

Against Southwest, Baggett claimed one goal and assisted on another and he followed that performance up by scoring a goal against Meridian.

Baggett also claimed the award one week earlier after scoring a hat trick and assisting on a goal in matches against Jones College and East Central.

In the latest edition of the NJCAA soccer rankings, the Wildcats checked in at No. 4 which is the highest ranking in program history.

Pearl River hits the road to take on Copiah-Lincoln on Tuesday at 7 p.m. before returning to the PRCC Soccer Complex on Friday to host archrival Gulf Coast at 7 p.m.

Single match tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time to avoid lines.
