Buena Vista junior Evan Taylor was recognized by the American Rivers Conference on Monday, Apr. 29, by being named the A-R-C Baseball Position Player of the Week for the period ending, Apr. 28.

Taylor had a big week for BVU, tying for the team lead with 10 hits and driving in a team-best 13 runs in five games played.

During game one of Saturday’s doubleheader against the Duhawks, the Panorama High School graduate gave the Beavers the lead for good with a bases clearing three-run double in the bottom of the fifth inning that made it 7-4. He finished that game with a season-high five RBI. In the series finale on Sunday, he extended the team’s lead to 7-2 in the bottom of the sixth with an opposite field 2-run home run. He also doubled in that game and currently leads the A-R-C with 18 doubles this season.

This marks the third time Taylor has received such recognition in his career.
