WEST UNION (KWWL) -

Former Athlete of the Week  Jake Greco of North Fayette set a new Iowa all-time best for career base hits when he recorded his 276th to eclipse Andy Beck of Kee High. The record-breaking hit came at home in the second game of a double header sweep of Sumner-Fredericksburg, Thursday.

Greco, a senior, also hit his 44th career homer in the first game to move into a tie with Wes Freie of Wilton, 2002-2005, for 11th on the all-time list. Greco who also ranks in the top 25 in career touchdowns will play baseball next year at Upper Iowa.
