SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The final Summit League Baseball weekly honors went to a couple of veterans as Oral Roberts junior Spencer Henson collected player of the week accolades while South Dakota State senior Ryan Froom earned pitcher of the week accolades.

Henson secured his second-consecutive Summit League Triple Crown in helping the Golden Eagles to a series win at Omaha. Henson went 5-for-10 against the Mavericks with a pair of home runs and four RBI. He closed out the regular season with a 3-for-5 effort, scoring three
runs and belting his league-leading 17th home run of the season in a 13-9 win on Saturday.

He also went 2-for-3 in a mid-week game against Wichita State and will enter the 2019 Summit League Baseball Championship with a five-game hitting streak and .372 average.

In the Jackrabbits' regular-season finale, Froom scattered four hits and allowed only an unearned run during an 8-1 victory over North Dakota State. Froom, who was granted an extra year of eligibility after missing all of the 2018 season, struck out four to register his sixth win of the season.
