University of North Georgia sophomore Steven Bower was named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association National Pitcher of the Week, the school announced Monday.
Bower threw the first no-hitter in school history last Friday as the Nighthawks beat Montevallo, 10-0. The lefty from Lawrenceville struck out 10 while allowing only three walks. Bower’s no-hitter was just the fifth in a Peach Belt Conference game and the first since 2005.
North Georgia (26-7) visits Young Harris at 7 p.m. today at Zell B. Miller Field.
