Three Fightin' Engineers Earn HCAC Weekly Honors

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology junior Jenny Miller, junior Gabi Razma and senior Isaiah Smith have been named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Players of the Week for their efforts last weekend.

Miller was named Softball Offensive Player of the Week; Razma claimed Women's Field Athlete of the Week honors; and Smith was named Men's Track Athlete of the Week.

Miller finished a perfect 5-5 with six runs scored, two doubles, one triple and one home run in a softball doubleheader sweep over Illinois College.  Miller also stole two bases to tie Rose-Hulman's single-season stolen base record at 14.  She slugged 2.400 and had a perfect 1.000 on-base percentage at 5-5 with two walks to help the Engineers defeat MacMurray 8-0 and 14-7.

On the season, the biomedical engineering major is hitting .452 with 14 hits, 14 runs scored, a .742 slugging average and a .605 on-base percentage.  Rose-Hulman stands 7-5 so far this season entering Saturday's home game with Illinois College.

Razma won the triple jump (36' 2") and placed second in the long jump (15' 9 1/2") at the Rose-Hulman Early Bird Invitational on Saturday.  The biomedical engineering major also placed second as part of the 4-x-400 meter relay team (4:18.54) and scored points with a seventh place in the 200-meter dash (27.75 seconds).

The effort helped the Fightin' Engineers finish second among eight teams in the women's competition.

Smith won the 400-hurdles (56.37), was part of winning relay teams in the 4-x-100 (42.75) and 4-x-400 (3:26.86) meter relays, and placed second in two events at the Rose-Hulman Early Bird Invitational on Saturday.  

The software engineering major was the runner-up in the 100 (11.12) and long jump (20' 8") to go along with one individual and two relay event victories.  Rose-Hulman won the men's meet with 272 points to outdistance DePauw as the team runner-up with 111.

The men's and women's track and field teams will travel to the Washington University (Mo.) Mini Meet in St. Louis on Friday.
