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 (NCBWA) 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.
The junior went 5-for-5 with two doubles, one triple, four runs scored and two RBI in Castleton's 13-4 game-one win before going 2-for-2 with a double and a triple while drawing three free passes, scoring four runs, and driving in a pair of runners in the 13-7 game-two triumph.
Ithaca College's Jake Binder was named NCBWA Division III Pitcher of the Week, while Oberlin College's Jacob Thompson was tabbed as the NCBWA Division III Rookie of the Week.
