Soulia, Kolkmeyer and Trimble Named MIAA Baseball Student-Athletes of the Week

Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Sloan Soulia (Fort Hays State), Dane Kolkmeyer (Missouri Southern) and Ryan Trimble (Truman) have been named MIAA Baseball Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of March 30-April 3, as selected by a conference SID panel.

MIAA BASEBALL CO-HITTERS OF THE WEEK
Sloan Soulia, C/DH, Fort Hays State

Soulia played a big part in Fort Hays State's three wins at Pittsburg State this past weekend. In game one with the Tigers trailing 1-0 after six innings, his leadoff double in the seventh led to a single that he scored on to tie the game. After PSU scored once to tie the game in the eighth, he triggered another rally in the ninth with a leadoff single and later scored on a wild pitch to give FHSU the lead for good. On Saturday, Soulia hit three home runs in the doubleheader, including two in the second game. His first of the day, a two-run shot in game one, gave FHSU a 9-8 lead. It was part of a six-run sixth inning after the Tigers were behind or tied through the first five innings. In the second game, he hit a two-run homer in the third inning to extend FHSU's lead to 3-0, then hit a solo shot his next time up in the fifth to push the FHSU lead to 5-3. He walked and scored in a three-run sixth inning. In the final game of the series, he recorded four hits (two singles and two doubles) with his double in the second inning producing two runs. Six of Soulia's nine hits in the series went for extra bases and he scored at least once in every game. He now has a team-leading five home runs, 12 doubles and .348 batting average on the season.

Dane Kolkmeyer, 2B, Missouri Southern

Kolkmeyer had a huge offensive weekend, helping the Lions to a split against visiting Washburn. The sophomore got things going in game one, going 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored. In the nightcap, Kolkmeyer went 2-for-4 with two runs, three RBIs, and another double as part of an eight-run first inning when the Lions batted around. In game one on Sunday, Kolkmeyer went 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI, but had the big game of the weekend in the nightcap when he went 4-for-4 with three runs scored and five RBIs, including a grand slam that was part of a six-run sixth inning that broke the game open for the Lions and secured the win. For the weekend, Kolkmeyer hit .688 with 11 hits, seven runs scored, 10 RBIs, two doubles, a grand slam, a walk, a stolen base and struck out just once.

Others nominated: Parker Amos, ESU; Tony Loeffler, MWSU; Michael Reese, TSU; Andy Petz, WU.

 

MIAA BASEBALL PITCHER OF THE WEEK
Ryan Trimble, RHP, Truman

Trimble pitched his second straight complete-game shutout on Friday as he one-hit the SBU Bearcats in a 2-0 victory. He struck out three and walked just one, as the lone hit came in the third inning in which Trimble later picked the runner off at first. He did not allow a base runner after the third inning, retiring 14 straight SBU hitters. Trimble has an 18 1/3 inning scoreless streak and has not allowed an earned run in 29 2/3 innings pitched while allowing just three runs total during that span. He has won his last three games started and has lowered his ERA to 1.80.

Others nominated: Andy Lewton, FHSU; Nic Jurado, MWSU.
