HUNTINGDON — Juniata baseball standout, sophomore Dakotah Snyder, a graduate of Lewisburg Area High School, was named The Landmark Conference Baseball Player of the Week on Monday.
The Eagles picked up three wins over the weekend, starting with a pair of victories on Saturday as Juniata won 5-4 and 10-1. Snyder went 2-for-3 with two RBI, two walks and a run scored across the two games.
On Sunday the team split, losing 10-7 before clinching the series win with an 11-5 victory in extra innings. Snyder got comfortable in the nation’s capital, as he went 4-for-9 with two home runs, five RBI, three stolen bases and two runs scored.
It was the second straight athlete of the week award for the baseball team, with Isaac Maclay (Belleville, Pa. / Mifflin County High School) winning last week. It’s the first time the school has picked up multiple conference accolades in the same season since 2010.
