The ‘Breds are taking the Ohio Valley Conference by storm with the team and individual players taking top spots in the season’s rankings.

Senior infielder Travis Isaak is ranked first in the nation in doubles with 19 and although Isaak is happy with his rankings, he is not worried about them.

“I don’t go into the season trying to lead the nation in anything,” he said. “It’s a nice honor to have, but there is still a lot of season to go. I’ve got to keep playing as well as I can and help the team win.”

Isaak attributed the hard work he has put in on his swing as the reason he has been able to hit so many doubles this season.
