Clary named Summit League Player of the Week

By Austin Hamm Sports Editor

SDSU Baseball catcher Reid Clary is this week’s Collegian Sports Athlete of the Week after helping the Jackrabbit baseball team finish 2-2 on their trip to Kansas City and Nacogdoches, Texas and being named the Summit League Player of the Week.

A senior from Princeton, Ill., Clary recorded two hits — including a double — in each of the Jackrabbits’ games versus MidAmerica Nazarene (Kan.) and Stephen F. Austin (Texas). He batted .571 (8-of-14) with four runs scored, four doubles, two runs batted in and two stolen bases. He recorded a .588 on-base percentage and .857 slugging percentage in the four games.

In addition, Clary tied a career high with three runs scored in the Jackrabbits’ 12-0 victory over Stephen F. Austin in the first game of a doubleheader on Feb. 28, and also threw out three-of-four would-be base-stealers during the week.

For the season, Clary is batting .333 with a .367 on base percentage and three stolen bases.

Next up for Clary and the Rabbits is a Spring Break road trip that includes a three game series at Southern Louisiana in Baton Rouge, La., a game each against the University of Southern Mississippi and Mississippi Valley State, and a three game series at Omaha.
