Walsh senior Jordan Grubb earned GLIAC Baseball Player of the Week honors, while Tiffin freshman Michael Boswell captured Pitcher of the Week accolades.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK - Jordan Grubb, Walsh
Walsh senior Jordan Grubb had one of the best weeks in his career as went 12-for-21 with nine RBI, nine runs scored, two home runs, and four doubles in helping the Cavaliers to a 5-1 week in the GLIAC. He recorded multiple hit games in four of the six contests and had splits of .571/.583/1.048.
