KANSAS CITY - Central Methodist junior infielder Jesse Zellner was named the Heart of America Athletic Conference Baseball Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
The Tonawanda, N.Y., native helped Central Methodist to a 2-2 record in conference play last week after splits with Benedictine (Kan.) and MidAmerica Nazarene (Kan.). In four games, Zellner batted .667 with one homerun, a double, eight hits, eight RBI and three runs scored as Central Methodist retained its first-place standing in the HAAC's Eastern Division.
Zellner will represent the conference in the running for the NAIA Baseball Player of the Week award, which will be announced no later than Wednesday afternoon.
