Earlham College senior baseball player Eric Elkus was named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) Baseball Hitter of the Week for games played from March 6-12.

Elkus led the Quakers to a 20-11 victory over a Olivet College in an offensive shootout at Sadler Stadium last week.

Elkus, who led the HCAC in home runs and RBIs in 2016, finished 3-6 with four RBIs and four runs scored. The Edgewood, Kentucky, native hit two home runs in the game, a solo shot in the fifth and a three-run bomb in the eighth.

The Quakers were scheduled to play a doubleheader against Oberlin on Sunday, but it got postponed.

Earlham (1-3) hosts Heidelberg University and Wilmington College this week.
