MILWAUKEE – Senior Garrett Willems of the MSOE baseball team was named the NACC Player of the Week for April 9, the league office announced late Monday.
Willems collected a hit each of the four games played last week as the Raiders went 3-1 to open NACC play. His most impressive outing was Monday in game one against Dominican when he collected three hits. He drove in six runs over the final two innings to lead MSOE back from 5-2 down and capped the rally with a walk-off grand slam. Then, Sunday, Willems hit a home run in a 4-1 Raider win at Rockford.
MSOE returns to the field Thursday, hosting Marian in a doubleheader that was originally scheduled for Saturday.
