Guelph’s Michael Clouthier had a rip-roaring week for the University of Waterloo Warriors baseball team.
Clouthier (Bishop Macdonell high school) put up some splendid numbers through three games and he has been named the OUA male athlete of the week.
The rookie posted a .600 average for Waterloo last week. He hit four home runs, had 11 RBIs and six runs scored.
Clouthier is a first baseman at Waterloo. Last season, he was a pitcher at Boston College.
He made just one appearance, before a shoulder injury forced him to sit out the rest of the season, says the school’s baseball website.
Waterloo is in Guelph tonight (Thursday) for a double header against the Guelph Gryphons.
Games are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. at Hastings Stadium.

Two District 10 high school football games were played last Friday.
We got to see about seven of the eight quarters played, and, yes, the new kick-off rule changes (mentioned in this space last week) are changing the game.
In those seven or so quarters, there was just one time a team elected to kick-off to their foes from their own 30-yard line.
All the other times, the scoring team chose to have the opposition start their drive at their own 35-yard line.
