MOORHEAD, Minn. (4/05/10)-- Cobber senior outfielder Nick Lewis (Fergus Falls, Minn.) was named the MIAC Player of the Week it was announced on Monday by the league office.

Lewis batted .583, had a .615 on-base percentage and posted a hefty 1.25 slugging percentage in Concordia's three games during the week and helped the Cobbers post an MIAC-opening sweep over Hamline on Saturday. Lewis was 3-for-3 in Concordia's 4-2 loss to the University of Minnesota and then went 4-for-9 with two home runs in the two wins against the Pipers.

It is the first time that Lewis has earned the weekly award. He becomes the first Cobber player to be named MIAC Player of the Week since MIAC MVP Kyle Johnson earned the honor last year on Apr. 27.

Against the Gophers Lewis did not record an out in his four at bats and drove in both of the team's runs in the 4-2 loss. He was 3-for-3 and had a double and a walk. Against Hamline he hit a pair of home runs in the first game that set the tone for CC's 9-4, 16-5 sweep. He started the scoring for the Cobbers in the opener by hitting his first home run of the season in the second inning and then added another long ball in the fifth.

In the team's three games during the week, Lewis did not make an error in eight chances and came through with a huge assist in the first game against Hamline when he threw a runner out from right field as he was trying to stretch a hit down the line into a double.

For the season Lewis is hitting .318 and has not made an error in 25 chances.
