Tyler Hermann of IHCC named Scholar Athlete of the Week
The Indian Hills Community College baseball team had the Athlete of the Week and the Scholar Athlete of the Week for their performances last week when the Falcons went 7-2 overall and improved their conference record to 6-2.
Sophomore Tyler Hermann, from Eau Claire, Wis., was named the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference Athlete of the Week after hitting a torrid .469 (15-for-32) for the week with nine runs scored and 17 RBIs.
Hermann drove in at least one run in all nine games he played, while slugging three doubles, a triple and his first home run of the spring.
For the season, the former Wisconsin high school player of the year is hitting .370 with 24 RBIs.
Christian Torres, a freshman lefthanded pitcher from Canovanas, Puerto Rico, had two outstanding starts to earn Scholar Athlete of the Week honors.
Torres went the first six frames in a combined seven-inning no-hitter against Southwestern CC in a 13-0 Falcons win.
He walked three and struck out four.
Torres followed up his hitless performance by allowing just one hit and fanning eight in a complete-game conference win against Marshalltown CC on Sunday.
He is off to a great start in his initial season of college baseball with a 4-0 record, a 1.26 ERA and 27 Ks in 28 2/3 innings.
Torres is also an honor roll student at IHCC with a 3.7 grade point average.
