WOOSTER, Ohio — The awards keep rolling in for Castleton University baseball standout Davis Mikell, as the junior first baseman was named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Division III Hitter of the Week on Wednesday afternoon.
Mikell, who has landed a spot on the D3baseball.com Division III Team of the Week and three Little East Conference Player of the Week awards this season, earns the accolades after reaching base in each of his 11 plate appearances during Castleton’s doubleheader sweep of Bard College.
He was a perfect 7-for-7 with five extra-base hits, slugged 2.000, scored eight runs and drove in four. He is the first LEC player to earn the honor this season.
Mikell and the 4-4 Spartans will take on Apprentice on Thursday, the first of their four games in three days in Newport News, Viginia.
