Tech’s Vaughn Earns GAC Weekly Award

Arkansas Tech University’s Mark Vaughn was named Great American Conference baseball co-player of the week on Tuesday, April 10.

A right-handed hitting senior from Salina, Kan., Vaughn went 11-for-18 with four home runs and eight runs batted in during four Wonder Boys’ games last week.

His performance helped Arkansas Tech (23-13 overall, 16-8 GAC) win 2-of-3 games during a GAC series at Southeastern Oklahoma State University on Sunday and Monday. It was the Wonder Boys’ seventh consecutive conference series victory.

Vaughn will carry a seven-game hitting streak into Arkansas Tech’s 6 p.m. non-conference game against Lyon College at Tech Field in Russellville on Tuesday, April 10. Live coverage will be available at
