Joliet, Ill. - Saint Xavier University freshman Megan Nonnemacher (Bloomington, Ill./Normal Community) was named the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) Pitcher of the Week when the conference office released the honor late Tuesday. The Cougars won both games of their home-opening, non-conference doubleheader against Clarke University (Iowa) last Saturday at SXU Softball Field. She becomes the first SXU player to receive either the conference's pitcher or player of the week award for the 2011 campaign.

Nonnemacher threw all seven innings of Saturday's first game and gave up just four hits and no walks with 10 strikeouts to improve to 6-1 this season. It was her only start of the week and helped the Cougars improve to 11-5 overall on the year.

Saint Xavier (11-5 overall) hopes to continue its season (weather permitting) on Saturday, March 26, with a home doubleheader against non-conference foe Cornerstone University (Mich.). The first game is scheduled for a 12 p.m. start.
