    ST. LOUIS – Senior Austin Montgomery has been selected Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week, Commissioner Doug Elgin announced Wednesday. Montgomery was honored for his performance during the period of February 18-24.

    Montgomery hit .389 (7-for-18) with four RBI in four games last week. In a three-game weekend series against Jacksonville State, the outfielder hit .500 with a double and his first home run of the season. In Saturday’s game, he recorded four hits and drove in four runs. In addition, he played errorless defense, starting three games in left field and one in right field. Montgomery holds a 3.47 GPA and is majoring in mechanical engineering.
