Hudson Valley's baseball student-athlete Jackson Wenstrom (Mandan, ND/Mandan) has been named the NJCAA Region 3 Baseball Player of the Week as announced by Region 3.
In six games this week Jackson batted .550 (11-20) with 3 doubles, 1 triple and four home runs. Jackson became the Vikings all-time home run king as he now has 18 career home runs. In 26 plate appearances, he drove in 15 runs, scored 10 runs, slugged 1.400 and posted an on-base percentage of .615.

Baseball is home this Saturday for the start of NJCAA Region 3 play as they welcome Schenectady to Joe Bruno Stadium on the campus of Hudson Valley in Troy, NY. First pitch is scheduled for 12 p.m.
