After a convincing sweep over Wright State this past weekend, the Crusaders have more hardware coming their way.

The Horizon League announced its players of the week Monday, naming John Loeffler (Burnsville, Minn./Burnsville HS [Des Moines Area CC]) Co-Batter of the Week and Chris DeBoo (Chula Vista, Calif./Otay Ranch HS [Cal State Northridge]) Pitcher of the Week.

In three games last week, Loeffler went 7-for-11 with seven runs batted in, two runs scored, two doubles, a pair of walks, and a sacrifice fly. He raised his average from .273 to .302 in the process. Loeffler currently owns a 32-game on-base streak. The senior has started 94 games at Valparaiso, reaching base in 87 of those starts.

DeBoo lowered his ERA to 3.55 in Horizon League games with seven innings of no earned run ball Friday against the Raiders. The right-hander scattered six hits and needed just 90 pitches to get through the seven innings in the 5-1 series-opening win. DeBoo has a 1.15 WHIP in five conference starts.

Valpo (18-23, 7-8 Horizon) will entertain Goshen College Monday and Western Michigan Tuesday before the first-place Milwaukee Panthers (18-16, 11-4 Horizon) come to town this weekend for a three-game set.
