Rose-Hulman’s Hank Akard (Indianapolis, Ind./Ben Davis) helped the Engineers finish 4-1 overall and 4-0 in HCAC play last week and has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Hitter of the Week.
The senior center fielder finished 13-of-24 (.542) at the plate with seven runs scored, four doubles, two home runs, eight RBI, and four stolen bases to set the RHIT career stolen bases record (43).
Rose beat Anderson in a single contest and swept a three-game series with Mount St. Joseph to move back atop the league standings with Manchester.
Rose-Hulman (16-8, 11-3 HCAC) will travel to Franklin and host Earlham this week.
