Lancaster, PA - Johns Hopkins junior third baseman Mike Spiciarich (Syosset, NY/Chaminade) was named the Centennial Conference Baseball Player of the Week, the league announced Monday.
Spiciarich went 7-for-11 for a team-high .636 batting average in four games last week, and was 6-for-8 in two Centennial Conference Tournament games. He scored a team-high nine runs and hit a team-best three home runs on the week while leading the Blue Jays to their fourth straight conference title.
Spiciarich went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 4-3 loss at No. 30 Montclair State, and scored three runs as a courtesy runner in the 8-4 victory over Dickinson Wednesday.
In Saturday's 18-15 win over Franklin & Marshall in the league tournament Spiciarich was 2-for-3 with a home run, four runs batted in and two runs scored, and in the 17-9 victory over the Diplomats Sunday he went 4-for-5 with two homers, four RBIs and four runs scored.
Spiciarich is hitting .351 this season with 33 runs scored and 20 RBIs for the top-ranked Blue Jays, who are 36-1 this year and have tied the school record for wins in a season. Hopkins travels to York Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. and hosts Mary Washington Thursday at 2 p.m. Sunday's game with No. 14 Salisbury has been postponed but could be made up sometime next week.
