LEICESTER, Mass. --- Senior first baseman Michael Bianco (Manorville, N.Y. / Eastport-South Manor) of the Becker College baseball team has been named the Becker Athlete of the Week for the week ending March 10, 2019.

Bianco had a blistering start of the season for the Hawks, hitting .500 at the plate (8 of 16) with two runs batted in, two runs scored and two walks. Bianco also saw some time on the mount, recording one strikeout in one-and-two-thirds innings.

Bianco is the first Becker College Athlete of the Week from this year to be so recognized in two different sports. He was recognized for his starring role on the football team for the week ending November 4, 2018.

The Hawks will be back in action on Tuesday, matching up against Juniata at the Lake Myrtle Sports Complex in Auburndale, Fla.
