    The Sheldon, Iowa, native earned the accolade after hitting .412 with a .500 on-base and .765 slugging percentage in leading the Hawkeyes to a 4-0 record at the Snowbird Baseball Classic. Zeutenhorst also scored six runs and had four RBIs during the weekend sweep.

    Zeutenhorst tied a career-high by going 4-for-6 in a 16-6 rout of Ball State where he belted a two-run home run, while finishing with two RBIs and three runs. He tallied his second multi-hit game of the weekend when he went 2-for-4 with two RBIs in a 7-1 triumph over Nebraska Omaha in the finale. Zeutenhorst also had a triple and two runs in the opening 9-4 victory over Mississippi Valley State.

    Zeutenhorst has reached base safely in all seven games this season, where he is hitting .357 (10-of-28) with 11 runs and nine RBIs -- two figures that rank second in the Big Ten. Zeutenhorst is second on the team with two home runs -- a career-high -- and he is slugging .679, while reaching base at a .500 clip.

    Zeutenhorst is the first Hawkeye to earn Big Ten Player of the Week honors since Mike McQuillan on May 21, 2012.

    The Hawkeyes, who at 6-1 are off to their best start since 1985, return to action Friday at the Stetson Invitational in Deland, Fla. Iowa opens play against the host Hatters at 6 p.m. (CT).
