GLVC honors USI’s Keener
University of Southern Indiana baseball junior utility player Matt Keener (Newburgh, Indiana) was named the Great Lakes Valley Conference “Player of the Week” for his performance in USI’s seven games this past week.
Keener hit .435 with a pair of homeruns and five runs batted in to help the Screaming Eagles to a 3-4 record that included a split (3-3) in GLVC action.
He had 10 hits in 23 at-bats, including a 4-of-5 effort in an 8-4 extra-inning triumph at Lewis University on Saturday. In that contest, Keener connected on a homerun, scored three runs, and had three RBIs.
He also was 2-of-4 against the University of Evansville and was 2-of-3 with a homer in USI’s first game against Lewis on Saturday.
Keener is a business/marketing major from Castle High School. USI will be at home Wednesday, March 24, to take on the University of Missouri-St. Louis in a noon doubleheader at the USI Baseball Field.
