Kolkmeyer helped the Lions stay undefeated this weekend with a four-game sweep of Truman.

The junior from Joplin, Mo., came off the bench in that game to go 2-3 with four RBIs, a triple and two runs scored. In the second game of the double-header, he went 2-3 with a double, a run and an RBI, to go along with a stolen base. He saved his best performance for last as he had two separate three-run home runs in the finale on Sunday. He hit an opposite field home run to score three in the first inning and followed that up with another three-run long ball to left field later in the game. For the week, Kolkmeyer hit .600 with two home runs, a double, a triple, six hits, a stolen base and 11 driven in.
