Freshman Bobby Grigas and senior Taylor Luckenbill helped the Susquehanna University Baseball team complete a 3-1 week including a Landmark Conference sweep of the three-game series with Scranton. As a result, the players have been named the Landmark Pitcher of the Week and Player of the Week respectively for the week ending March. 26.

Grigas threw his third shutout of the season as the River Hawks won a 13-0 decision in the first of three games against Scranton Saturday. He allowed just four hits and struck out three batters to earn his third win of the season. He now has 31 strikeouts in 30 1/3 innings of work this season.

Luckenbill led the Susquehanna offense for the week with a .429 batting average going 6-for-14 at the plate with five runs scored, two runs batted in and four doubles. He was also 2-for-2 in stolen base attempts.

Susquehanna hopes to open the home portion of its schedule this week with a non-conference game against Keystone Wednesday.
