GREENWOOD, Indiana – Earlham College baseball senior Eric Elkus has been named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) Baseball Hitter of the Week for games played from March 6-12.
Elkus led the Quakers to a 20-11 victory over a Olivet College in an offensive shootout at Sadler Stadium last week.
Elkus, who led the HCAC in home runs and RBIs in 2016, finished 3-6 with four RBIs and four runs scored. The Edgewood, Kentucky, native hit two home runs in the game, a solo shot in the fifth and a three-run bomb in the eighth.
The Quakers were scheduled to play a doubleheader against Oberlin on Sunday, but it got postponed.
Earlham (1-3) hosts Heidelberg University and Wilmington College this week.
