MANHATTAN, Kan. – After hitting over .500 and driving in nine runs during K-State’s 4-0 week, junior outfielder Mitch Meyer was named College Sports Madness National Player of the Week, the website announced.

Meyer hit .538 (7-for-13) with a double, two home runs and three walks in last week’s four games. The Stilwell, Kan. native, who was also selected as the Big 12 Player of the Week, led the Big 12 in RBI and slugging percentage (1.077), tied for the conference lead in home runs, and finished second in the Big 12 in batting average, total bases (14) and on-base percentage (.625).
