Illinois State's Sean Beesley has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week, MVC Commissioner Doug Elgin announced Tuesday.
One week after being named the Missouri Valley Conference Baseball Player of the Week, Beesley continued his streak of stellar play. The senior outfielder batted .333 with a .455 on-base percentage over the weekend in a three-game series against Bradley. The native of Darien, Illinois, hit safely in all three games in the series, and also walked twice. He additionally played perfect defense in center field.
A standout in the classroom as well, Beesley owns a 3.33 cumulative grade-point average as a technology and engineering education major.
Illinois State's baseball game Tuesday at Wisconsin-Milwaukee was postponed due to inclement weather. The teams will play Wednesday at Milwaukee's Henry Aaron Field at 2 p.m.
