Joliet, Ill. - Saint Xavier University senior shortstop Brendan Christy (Tinley Park, Ill./Andrew) swept Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) and NAIA Region VII Player of the Week honors Wednesday after his impressive individual outings as SXU finished 5-2 overall in baseball action last week.
