Somerset, N.J. (March 27) -- Mount St. Mary's University freshman Jared Urban has been named the Northeast Conference Baseball Rookie of the Week, as announced by the league office on Monday afternoon.
Urban helped spark the Mount's offense in the three-game series against LIU Brooklyn, batting a combined .400 BA (6-for-15) with four extra-base hits, six RBIs, three runs, and an .867 slugging pct. After an 0-fer in a series-opening victory, Urban produced six hits in his next 11 at-bats. The rookie was just a double away from the cycle in game two while hitting his first career home run and a bases-clearing triple that ignited the offense. Urban singled in the fifth inning of the series finale before adding leadoff doubles in the seventh and ninth frames.
Urban and the Mountaineers return to action this Wednesday, March 29 in a double-header against Maryland Eastern Shore beginning at 1 pm.
