HAVERFORD, Pa. – Haverford sophomore outfielder Ethan Lee-Tyson has been named the Centennial Conference Player of the Week, the conference office announced in a release on Monday afternoon. Lee-Tyson takes the award after an outstanding 4-1 week that solidified a trip to the postseason for the Fords.
Lee-Tyson hit .476 on the week as the Fords qualified for the Centennial Conference playoffs for the 10th straight season. The Weston, Conn. product had 10 hits in 21 at-bats with 10 runs scored on the week. Lee-Tyson had home runs in wins against Swarthmore and Gettysburg and drove in eight runs on the week to go along with two stolen bases. He posted a 1.450 OPS in five games.
