BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana outfielder Morgan Colopy was named the Big Ten's Freshman of the Week after his huge series against Minnesota.

Colopy, a Centerville, Ohio native, was 7-for-13 over the weekend, with two doubles, a homer and eight runs batted in. This was his first Big Ten honor, and he is the first Indiana player to win this award since Gabe Bierman on May 13, 2019.

Indiana (18-8) swept the series with Minnesota and moved into second place by percentage points ahead of Michigan and just 1.5 games behind first-place Nebraska. 

For the season, Colopy is hitting .309, with four homers and 17 RBIs. He has started the last nine games in right field after coming off the bench at the beginning of the season.

Colopy is the fourth Hoosier to win a Big Ten honor this season. Tommy Sommer, McCade Brown and Braydon Tucker have all been named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week this season.

The Hoosiers will host Iowa in a three-game series this weekend at Bart Kaufman Field in Bloomington, Ind. starting on Friday, April 30 at 5 p.m. ET. Saturday's game is at 2 p.m. ET, and Sunday's finale is at Noon ET. Iowa (18-11) is in fourth place, 1.5 games behind the Hoosiers. Indiana has 17 games remaining, all against teams .500 or better in the Big Ten.
