Briar Cliff’s Cole named GPAC Pitcher of the Week

Briar Cliff’s Cole named GPAC Pitcher of the Week

After pitching the first six innings of a combined no-hitter, Briar Cliff’s Nicholas Cole was chosen as the first GPAC Pitcher-of-the-Week for the 2019 baseball season.

Cole struck out nine Northwestern batters as the Chargers defeated the Red Raiders 2-0 to complete a conference sweep on Friday in Topeka, Kan.

Cole, who is from Topeka, improved to 2-0 this season as the Cliff capped off the team no-hitter with Kaiona Navas closing the door with a 1-2-3 seventh inning.

Doane’s Skye Harnly was named the conference player-of-the-week. Briar Cliff is 12-10 overall this season with a league mark of 3-1. Cole and the rest of the Blue and Gold are scheduled to take on Morningside this weekend in a four-game set with each team hosting one of the doubleheaders.
