SEWARD, Neb. – On the heels of his first career two-home run game, sophomore Kaleb Geiger has been named the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Baseball Player of the Week, as announced by the league on Tuesday. This marks the first career GPAC honor for Geiger, who is also the first Bulldog this season to collect a weekly award.

A native of Sedalia, Colo., Geiger has been an offensive force for a lineup that ranks in the top 25 nationally in runs per game (7.9). Last week the slugging first baseman went 7-for-11 with four extra base hits, including two home runs in the 21-4 victory over Grace University on Sunday. Geiger totaled five hits in six at bats in addition to six RBIs in the doubleheader sweep of Grace. Geiger has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games.

On the season, Geiger leads Concordia in all three standard rate stats: batting average (.397), on-base percentage (.530) and slugging percentage (.730). He has tallied four home runs, five doubles, two triples and 25 RBIs in 21 games. He is a career .341 hitter over 64 games as a Bulldog.

Geiger and company are back in action on Tuesday (March 22) versus No. 13 Tabor College (Kan.) (21-8). First pitch from Plum Creek Park in Seward is set for 1 p.m. CT.
