Central York High School graduate Dan Sepic, a sophomore baseball player, has been named the Indiana University of Pennsylvania Male Athlete of the Week.

The former Panthers standout was also selected the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Western Division Baseball Co-Athlete of the Week.

Sepic is an IUP Athlete of the Week for the first time after the IUP baseball team went 3-1 in four games against Slippery Rock last week. Sepic went a combined 8 for 13 at the plate, while smacking two home runs, two doubles and batting in six runs.

The first baseman also scored six runs and had a slugging percentage of 1.231. The four games against Slippery Rock account for three of Sepic's eight multi-hit games on the season for the Crimson Hawks.

In the Crimson Hawks' 11-5 win over The Rock in Game 1 Saturday, Sepic went 3 for 5 at the plate with five RBIs. In the first inning, he homered down the left-field line for a two-run shot, and followed that up with another two-run home run in the fourth.

On the year, Sepic is batting .361 with 23 RBIs, two home runs and 20 runs scored. He leads the Crimson Hawks in slugging percentage at .653 and is second in doubles, triples, home runs, RBIs and total bases.

IUP is 13-16 overall and 6-6 in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.
