Ashburn, VA (March 24, 2017) – Potomac Falls Alumni and High Point baseball right-hander Drew Daczkowski was named the Big South Come Ready Nutrition Freshman of the Week, the league announced on Monday. Daczkowski set new career-highs in both innings pitched and strikeouts in a win over Army.
Daczkowski earned his first collegiate win with seven innings of work against Army on Saturday. The right-hander allowed just two earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out a career-high seven. In three starts this season, Daczkowski is 1-1 with a 2.35 ERA and 12 strikeouts in 15-1/3 innings.
The Freshman of the Week honor is the first of the season for Daczkowski and the Purple & White. He is the first HPU player to earn player of the week honors since Andrew Gottfried was named Big South Pitcher of the Week on May 16 of last season.
