Two Beavers win Heartland honors

Softball

Junior shortstop Caylin Morstadt (Delaware/Rutherford B. Hayes) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Softball Hitter of the Week.

Morstadt led Bluffton with a .478 batting average as the Beavers went 2-6 over their final eight games in Florida last week. The junior finished with team highs of 11 hits, 10 runs, a .783 slugging percentage and a .600 on-base percentage. 

Morstadt hit a solo shot to straightaway center which tied Heidelberg 2-2 in the sixth inning of Bluffton's second game on Monday night. She finished the job an inning later when her two-run bomb to left center capped off Bluffton's 5-3 win over the Student Princes.

The Beavers (2-8, 0-0 HCAC) are slated to host doubleheaders against Kalamazoo (Thursday) and Albion (Saturday) later this week.

Baseball

Senior outfielder Colin Gregory (Fremont/Clyde) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Hitter of the Week for his work at the Gene Cusic Classic last week.

Gregory hit four home runs and fashioned a superb .871 slugging percentage as the Beavers closed out their final nine games in Florida with a 3-6 record. He led the team with 11 hits and nine runs and he was second with eight RBI. Through the first 11 games, Gregory is hitting .359 with five dingers, 11 RBI and 12 runs scored.

Bluffton's game slated for Tuesday at Ohio Northern has been postponed so the Ohio opener will be with Hiram on Thursday at Memorial Field. The first pitch is slated for 4:15 p.m.
