Washington junior left-handed pitcher Haughian was named NCBWA National Pitcher of the Week
April 8, 2008
DALLAS - The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) released the Pro-Line Athletic National Player of the Week awards for the period ending April 8, today. NC State senior first baseman/outfielder Ryan Pond was named National Hitter of the Week, while Washington junior left-handed pitcher Nick Haughian was named National Pitcher of the Week. The NCBWA Board reviews candidates from each Division I Conference each week and names winners each Tuesday throughout the season.
Haughian, from Mountain View, Calif., threw a complete game, two-hit shutout in the Huskies 1-0 win over 18th-ranked Arizona last Friday at Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners. He only allowed two base hits and three walks while shattering his old career-high with 15 strikeouts.
With this week's honor, Haughian automatically is named to the watch list for Roger Clemens Award, given to the national collegiate pitcher of the year, sponsored by the Greater Houston Baseball Organization.
