Wheaton baseball sweeps weekly CCIW awards
After a weekend sweep of action over Loras College and Greenville University, the Thunder baseball team followed with a sweep of the weekly CCIW awards. Senior catcher Sam Reichert and sophomore pitcher David Solfelt were named the Hitter and Pitcher of the Week, respecitively, as announced by the conference office on Tuesday afternoon. For both players, this is their first career weekly honor from the conference.
David Solfelt tossed five shutout innings in his first collegiate start on the mound. The sophomore right-hander scattered just two hits in total after retiring the first 11 Greenville batters he faced. Solfelt struck out eight Panther hitters and did not issue a walk.
