CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard baseball sophomore shortstop Jake McGuiggan (Hingham, Mass.) has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week in an announcement made Tuesday afternoon.

McGuiggan was a key component of Harvard's successful week, which saw the Crimson defeat Boston College for a second time this season while splitting road games at Yale. McGuiggan batted .458 (11-of-24) with three doubles, four runs and four RBI in the week.

McGuiggan finished with four multi-hit games, including an impressive 4-of-5 performance against BC, with one double, two runs, two RBI and a stolen base. For the week, he slugged .583 and finished with a .480 on-base percentage. He also swiped two bases.

In his last eight Ivy League games, McGuiggan is batting .464 (13-28) with six extra base hits.

McGuiggan's award marks the first weekly honor for a Harvard player this season. He took home his first-ever Ivy League weekly award and became the first Crimson player to be named Player of the Week since Tyler Albright on April 27, 2010.
