Cross Earns KCAC Baseball Player of the Week Honor

KWU Athletics ReleaseApril 2, 2019

Kansas Wesleyan’s Austin Cross has been named as the KCAC Baseball Player of the Week for his efforts during the last week for the Coyotes. Cross was selected by a vote of the conference sports information directors.

Cross had quite a week for the Coyotes. He started off with a strong performance against Hastings, hitting two homers, a 3-run shot and a grand slam, driving in seven runs as KWU won over the Broncos. He then didn’t slow down a bit in a doubleheader with Avila. He went 3-for-5 in the first game, driving in four more runs in KWU’s 8-3 win, then was 2-of-4 in KWU’s 5-4 win, driving in another run. For the week he hit .500 with seven hits, and drove in 12 runs, with a 1.071 slugging percentage. He also had a stolen base.

Cross helped the Coyotes improve to 14-15 overall and 8-10 in the KCAC after Sunday’s games with Avila.

Wesleyan capped its series with the Avila Eagles on Monday, winning 13-3 in seven innings, improving to 15-15 overall and 9-10 in the KCAC.

The Coyotes play at Concordia (Neb.) on Wednesday, before hosting Oklahoma Wesleyan on Friday and Saturday.
