Hrobak Named South Atlantic Conference Pitcher of the WeekFebruary 11, 2014
ROCK HILL, S.C.-Brevard College sophomore Jamie Hrobak has been selected as South Atlantic Conference Pitcher of the Week after helping the Tornados to a 4-0 start this season, the league office announced Tuesday.
“I’m super proud of Jamie and our entire team,” said head coach Amanda Kamekona. “She definitely deserves this honor, and it’s nice to see all of her hard work paying off.”
Hrobak didn’t allow an earned run in 14 innings last week, finishing 2-0 with 21 strikeouts while issuing only three walks.
The Mill Spring, N.C. native tossed a pair of complete games, going five innings on Friday in game one of Brevard’s sweep of Johnson C. Smith, and then seven innings on Saturday in a 3-2 Tornado win over Lees-McRae. In total, the sophomore allowed only six hits in her three appearances.
Hrobak is one of six SAC pitchers who have yet to allow an earned run this season, and her 21 strikeouts rank second in the conference.
“I think this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of her ability,” added Kamekona.
The Tornados are back in action as they visit the Milligan College Buffaloes for a doubleheader on Sunday afternoon.
