MILWAUKEE, Wis. (naccsports.org) --- Concordia University Chicago pitcher Kyle Strepek (Plainfield, Ill.) and Marian University infielder Jake Arens (Mauston, Wis.) have been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Baseball Student-Athletes of the Week for week of March 11-17, 2019, as selected by the league's sports information directors.

NACC Pitcher of the Week
Strepek
did not allow a run over 14 innings last week. He scattered four hits and a pair of walks in seven innings while striking out 11 to get the win in a 3-1 CUC victory over St. Scholastica on March 11. The junior then allowed two unearned runs on five hits and three walks with a pair of strikeouts in seven innings en route to a no decision in a 3-2 Cougar win over TCNJ on March 17. Seventh-ranked Concordia Chicago returned from Florida over the weekend with an 8-1 mark, having won eight straight after falling in their season opener.

NACC Position Player of the Week
Arens
, a junior, paced the Sabre offense and helped lead Marian to a 4-1 record to open their spring trip. Arens hit .474 (9-for-19) over five games, recording at least one hit in every game along with two multi-hit games. He was responsible - either directly or indirectly - for 13 Marian runs with seven RBIs and six runs scored. His best game of the week came in the second game of a doubleheader against UW-Superior on March 16 where he went 4-for-5 with two doubles, three RBIs and three runs scored.
