Texas – University of Mary Hardin-Baylor baseball player Will Stafford
has been named American Southwest Conference Co-Hitter of the Week for
week ending March 9th. Stafford shares this week's honor with LeTourneau University outfielder Chris Bertram.
Stafford, a sophomore outfielder from Cinco Ranch High School in Katy, batted .692 over four games for the Cru last week, going 9-13 at the plate. Stafford had at least two hits in every game, drove in four runs and scored another. He added three stolen bases and a pair of sacrifice bunts as UMHB went 3-1 over the week.
The Cru baseball team is 9-2 overall and 7-2 in ASC play on the season. UMHB will play a non-conference game at Southwestern University Tuesday night in Georgetown before returning home to host Mississippi College for a three-game ASC series this weekend at Red Murff Field.
