Park Ridge, Ill. – The University of Minnesota’s Jordan Kozicky was named freshman of the week Monday by the Big Ten after recording a .563 batting average (9-16) and a .632 on-base percentage in four games.
The Minneapolis, Minn. native picked up his first collegiate home run and first collegiate steal in a 13-12 loss to Indiana Saturday. He was also 5-5 on Saturday and recorded seven consecutive hits in a row with two more hits in Sunday’s game. The freshman infielder scored four runs while driving in three RBIs, hitting two doubles and walking three times.
In the field, Kozicky recorded four putouts, four assists and did not commit an error at third base. In 14 games this season, he has a .367 batting average with 13 RBIs, one home run, 12 runs scored and twelve walks. This is the first weekly award for Kozicky and the first Gopher to earn the honor since Connor Schaefbauer on April 29, 2013.
