DALLAS (NCBWA) – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association released its NCAA Division II National Players of the Week awards for the week ending on March 20, 2022. Among those rewarded, Junior LHP Mason Philley has been named the National Pitcher of the Week.
Philley made the accomplishment of throwing the first perfect game in Great American Conference history to occur in a conference game as the Weevils defeated East Central on Saturday afternoon with a final score of 12-0.
He totaled a season-high 10 strikeout game, striking out the side in both the fifth and sixth innings, as he would sit down all 21 batters he faced, including a season-high 10 strikeouts, as he recorded the 11th no-hitter in conference history.
The junior logged a complete game shut-out over East Central as the Weevils would in the game after the seventh.
Philley’s record moves to 3-2 on the season.
