GW Baseball's Williams Named A-10 Pitcher of Week
Sophomore Threw 10 Shutout Innings and Earned Win Versus Lafayette
March 3, 2014
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington sophomore right hander Jacob Williams was named the Atlantic 10 Pitcher of the Week on Monday afternoon, the league office announced. It marks the first career conference honor for Williams.
Williams was on point for the Colonials in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Lafayette in Game 2 of a doubleheader. Williams earned the victory after pitching a stellar 10.0 shutout innings, scattering six hits on two walks with five strikeouts. He threw 127 total pitches with 88 going for strikes.
The Colonials won in the bottom of the 10th inning after scoring the winning run following a series of three errors by Lafayette's defense.
Williams is the first GW pitcher to earn A-10 Pitcher of the Week honors since Eric Cantrell earned co-pitcher of the week honors on April 12, 2010. The last outright Pitcher of the Week award won by a GW baseball player was Cantrell on March 1, 2010.
Williams will take the mound again in Game 2 of Saturday's scheduled doubleheader with Cornell at Barcroft Park.
