As the 2019 Midwest Collegiate League season comes to a close, the league has announced its eight pair of weekly award winners with two Southland Vikings represented among the honorees. 

Mike Tobin (Concordia University / Hickory Hills, Ill.) secured the Pitcher of the Week award while catcher Jake Schroeder (Northern Illinois University / Flossmoor, Ill.) won the Player of the Week award.

Tobin had an incredible week on the mound for the Vikings in his four appearances, including a seven-inning complete game against the Northwest Indiana Oilmen. In his combined ten and one-third innings on the mound, Tobin gave up only two earned runs on eight hits while striking out ten en route to a 1-1 record for the week.

Schroeder had a respectable week at the plate for the Vikings, batting .308 with 12 RBIs on eight hits. On Friday, July 26 against the Joliet Generals, Schroeder went 3-4 at the plate with seven RBIs, four of which came on a grand slam in the first inning to help the Vikings secure a win and remain in control of first place in the MCL.
