SAINT LOUIS – Saint Louis University starting pitcher Jackson Wark was named Atlantic 10 Pitcher of the Week after his dominant performance over the weekend.
Wark bumped his record up to 2-1 after a seven-inning performance against Chicago State on Sunday where he led the Billikens to a series sweep over the Cougars at home.
In his outing, the big junior tossed seven innings of shutout baseball and allowed just two hits with seven strikeouts and one walk to his credit.
The win is the first weekly honor for Wark and the second of the season for the Billikens. Parker Sniatynski took home Atlantic 10 Player of the Week honors on Monday, February 19 in the first week of the awards in 2018.
