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
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.
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.
