Bluffton University’s Kyle Niermann (Napoleon, Ohio/H.S.) led the Beavers to their first ever series win over Rose-Hulman and has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Hitter of the Week.
The senior outfielder finished the week 8-for-16 (.500) at the plate as the Beavers won two of three against the Engineers and lost at Denison. Niermann hit two doubles with five runs scored and one RBI and became the second BU player to eclipse 200 career hits.
Bluffton (11-7, 3-3 HCAC) will face Oberlin, Defiance, and Franklin this week.
