March 21, 2005

WORCESTER, Mass. - Senior third baseman Mike Schell (Newtown, Pa.) has been named the Holiday Inn Express Crusader of the Week, for competition from March 14-20. Schell went three for 10 with four runs batted in last week, as the Holy Cross baseball team dropped two of three games at Central Connecticut State.

In the opening game of the series, Schell had a two-run double in the third inning to give Holy Cross a 3-2 lead. Central Connecticut eventually came back to win that game 5-4. In the second game of the series, Schell had a two-run single in the third inning, giving the Crusaders a 2-0 lead on their way to a 4-2 victory. He also had a single in the series finale, which the Blue Devils won 9-1.

In addition to his work at the plate, Schell totaled two putouts and 12 assists in the field over the three games, without making any errors.

The Crusaders, who stand 2-8 on the season, are scheduled to return to action at Clark University on Tuesday, March 22. Holy Cross will then travel to Northeastern for a doubleheader on Saturday, March 26.
