PORTLAND, Ore. – Leading Montana State Billings to its third straight series victory and a share of first place in the GNAC standings last weekend, senior catcher Kade Hall has been named by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) as its Division II West Region Player of the Week.

Named the GNAC Baseball Player of the Week on Monday, Hall led Montana State Billings’ scoring barrage at Central Washington by going 8 for 18 with three home runs and nine RBIs as the Yellowjackets went 3-1 against the Wildcats. Hall went 4 for 6 in Friday’s opening 14-13 loss, hitting solo home runs in the first and seventh and a two-RBI double in the fourth. He went 2 for 4 and had his third solo home run of the day in the nightcap.

The senior opened Saturday with four RBIs, three of which came on a double in the fifth, and two runs in Sunday’s nightcap. The Yellowjackets also tied the GNAC record for home runs by a team in a four-game series to add to their league-best 40 home runs this season.

Hall was selected as the West Region Player of the Week over Hawaii Hilo senior infielder Phillip Steering and Stanislaus State sophomore infielder Jack Large. He will now be forwarded for the NCBWA national award, which is scheduled to be released on Wednesday, April 4.

Montana State Billings looks to take sole possession of first place as it hosts Western Oregon this weekend for a four-game series at Dehler Park. The Yellowjackets also begin a 20-game homestand to close out the regular season.
