MANSFIELD, Mass. – Freshman Chris Schworer (Medfield, Mass.) of the Saint Anselm College baseball team was selected as the Northeast-10 Conference Rookie of the Week on Monday after making his collegiate debut last week.
In only his second career game in a Hawks uniform, Schworer pounded a long home run to left field against East Stroudsburg on Feb. 15 for his first career hit, driving in sophomore Max Silverman (Westford, Mass.) who led off the inning with a single.
Schworer is the first Rookie of the Week selection from Saint Anselm since then-freshman Jared Ferris (Methuen, Mass.) captured the honors on Feb. 6, 2017. He is also the first student-athlete from the Hilltop to record a home run in his first collegiate at-bat since teammate Ben Horsfall (Westborough, Mass.) accomplished the feat last season on Feb. 25, 2018.
The Hawks return to action Saturday, Feb. 23, kicking off a three-game series at USciences with a doubleheader beginning at high noon.
