DUBUQUE – Clarke University’s Jakob Kirman (SR/Dubuque, Iowa) has been named the NAIA NCBWA (National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association) Pitcher of the Week for the period ending February 2.
Kirman, who on Monday was named the Heart of America Athletic Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week, tossed a season-opening no-hitter in Clarke’s 11-0 win over Bacone College this past weekend. He struck out 12 and issued just two bases-on-balls in the win.
Tyler Williams (Oklahoma City) was cited as the Offensive Player of the Week, while Wyatt Towe (Columbia College) was named the Freshman/Rookie of the Week.
The NAIA NCBWA committee recognizes baseball players from around their country at the NAIA level for their accomplishments, apart from the NAIA Player of the Week awards.
