Two more athletes from Central College have been named Iowa Conference athletes of the week in their respective sports. Katie Tenboer, a first baseman on the softball team was cited as position player of the week for the second time this season. Backing up the honor was Tenboer’s performance against Buena Vista University last Saturday, when she went 6-for-7 at the plate with two home runs nine total RBIs – including a school-record six in one game – to lead the Dutch in a sweep of the Beavers.

Weekly Iowa Conference honors also went to men’s track and field standout Matt Graber, who also earned the recognition for the second time this season, thanks in part to his toss of 54 feet, 7.25 inches in the shot put, which broke the school record and put him ninth in Division III.
