Findlay, Ohio – Freshman baseball player Ryan O'Malley has been named as the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) Player of the Week after his performance in the Oilers season-opening double-header against Wheeling Jesuit.
O'Malley, playing in his first games as a college athlete, was a perfect 4-for-4 in the first game of the double-header, finishing with three runs scored and one RBI. In that contest, O'Malley, who got the start at catcher, threw out a perfect 2-of-2 potential base stealers from behind the plate. In the second game, the Oilers' freshman picked up two more hits to finish the day 6-for-9, three runs scored, and two RBI.
O'Malley and the Oilers will be back on the field on Sunday, March 4 against West Virginia Wesleyan in Auburndale, Florida.
