MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Bemidji State senior catcher Shaun Ross has been named the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Baseball Co-Player of the Week for April 16, the league office announced yesterday.

Ross hit .483 in eight games for BSU last week, leading the team to a 6-2 record (6-0 against NSIC foes). After starting 2-for-7 at the plate in BSU’s non-conference double-header at North Dakota State on April 16, Ross heated up in six games against UM-Crookston and UM-Morris.

In those six games - all BSU wins - Ross led the team with a .545 batting average (12 for 22). His 12 hits in the six NSIC games were a team high, and he also led the Beavers with nine runs scored, six doubles, 12 RBI, 21 total bases and a .955 slugging percentage.

He was also perfect in the field in 37 attempts at his catcher position.
Ross went 4 for 5 with three doubles, five RBI and three runs scored in BSU’s 15-8 win over UM-Crookston in Game 2 of a double-header on April 17. The four base hits and three doubles each mark a season high by a BSU player, and his five RBI are a personal season high and one of just three five-RBI games by a BSU hitter this year.

Ross then went 3 for 4 with an RBI and three runs scored in a 13-1 win over UM-Morris in Game 1 of a double-header on April 20, then came back on April 21 with a 2 for 4, four-RBI day in Game 1 of the second twinbill in the series.

For the week, Ross drew a walk and did not strike out in 29 at-bats.
