KANSAS CITY - Central Methodist outfielder Kyle Poynter has been named the Heart of America Athletic Conference Baseball Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
Poynter recorded a pair of multi-hit games last week as the Eagles swept a four-game series from Missouri Valley to run their current winning streak to nine games. A junior from Houston, Mo., he batted .600 with a double, two home runs, four runs scored and four RBI. Poynter highlighted the weekend with a 3-for-3 outing that included both of his home runs and all four RBI in a 4-1 triumph.
