Men’s Student-Athlete of the Week
David Larson - Baseball - Junior - Port Tobacco, MD
David Larson from the baseball team has been honored as the WPI Male Student-Athlete of the Week for the week ending Sunday, April 14th. The junior hit .467 (7-for-15) with three doubles and a home run to go with four BI and three runs scored. He also boasted a .867 slugging and .556 on-base percentages. Two doubles were part of a 3-for-4 series opener at Coast Guard before the third was in a 2-for-4 game that also saw the junior allow only three hits and strike out six in an eight-inning victory. He concluded the week with what proved to be the game-winning swing in the form of a home run in the finale. The two-run shot also sparked a five run frame.
