Kevin Kaczmarski Named MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Week




Kevin Kaczmarski’s performance on the field this season has the Purple Aces baseball team in first place while his efforts in the classroom earned him recognition today as he was named the Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week.

The MVC-leading Purple Aces have relied on Kaczmarski as the spark plug in their lineup. The junior helped Evansville continue its success with a sweep of Bradley over the weekend. In the series, Kaczmarski hit .500 as he went 5-for-10 from the plate with a triple, 4 RBIs, two walks and did not strike out.

He leads the Aces in doubles (16), triples (4), home runs (4), RBIs (43), slugging (.536) and total bases (89). One of the top offensive weapons in the Valley, Kaczmarski leads the league in RBIs and is tied for the lead in doubles while tying for second in triples.

To qualify for Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week laurels, student-athletes must carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.20, completed at least one academic year at a Valley institution and must be at least a sophomore in academic standing.

Redshirt freshmen and first-year junior college transfers are not eligible. In addition to the academic qualifications, student-athletes will be evaluated on their athletic performance for a one-week period.
