Krumwiede garners his first Summit League Player of the Week honor, while Koelewyn notched his second-career Pitcher of the Week award.
Last weekend, the Mavericks went 3-1 as Krumwiede batted .455 with five hits, seven RBI, two doubles and two home runs. The senior shortstop also had a 1.182 slugging percentage and a .611 on base percentage. He was also credited with a relief appearance on the mound (0.2 IP) in Omaha’s 9-5 win over Northern Illinois.
In that same game, Koelewyn pitched 6.0 scoreless innings with just two hits and four walks allowed. The junior also fanned a career-high 10 batters in the game and improved to a perfect 2-0 on the bump this season. He also held opponents to just a .105 batting average.
Omaha opens its home campaign this Friday, March 6, at Noon against Portland for a doubleheader at Seymour Smith Park. Omaha then takes on Creighton the following day, March 7, at 4:30 pm. in TD Ameritrade Park.
