PRINCETON, N.J. – First-year Will Savage became the first Columbia baseball player to earn three Ivy League Rookie of the Week honors as he was named a co-recipient on Tuesday by the conference office.

Columbia’s team-leader in batting average had another torrid week at the plate, hitting .400 over five games. The Bronx, N.Y., native scored four times, knocked three doubles and drove in a trio of teammates. On the base paths, Savage was 4-for-5 in steal attempts.

On the defensive side, Savage manned second base like an experienced veteran, converting all 21 of his attempts, including helping the Lions turn three double plays.

Former Lions Jon Eisen and Dario Pizzano won the award twice in 2009 and 2010, respectively. As a team, the Lions earned the Rookie of the Week award four times in 2010, with Nick Ferraresi and Tim Giel each being selected along with Pizzano’s two selections.

Savage shares the award this week with Yale’s Chris Lanham, who pitched a two-hit shutout in the Bulldogs’ 1-0 win against Harvard.
