CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard freshman Conor Quinn has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday. The distinction is the first of Quinn's career and the second consecutive week that the Crimson boasts the top newcomer in the League.
Quinn was crucial this weekend for Harvard as the Crimson split its Division-opening series with Brown. The Amherst, Massachusetts native hit .538 (7-for-13) over the four games, including a pair of doubles, driving in five runs and crossing the plate four times himself. He was errorless in the field, while accounting for three putouts in the outfield.
Quinn, who is the fourth weekly award winner this season, was joined in the weekly accolades by Honor Roll inductees Matt Hink (.538, 7R, 3 2B, 5RBI, 2BB) and Sean Poppen (6.1 IP, 5 Hits, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 10 K, 2.84 ERA, 1-0) after the 2-2 weekend.
The Crimson, looks to get back to its winning ways with a crosstown rivalry game versus Boston College on Wednesday in Chestnut Hill at 3 p.m.
