DALTON WESTFALL SELECTED AS THIS WEEK'S OVC CO-PITCHER OF THE WEEK

April 24, 2017

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – University of Tennessee at Martin baseball player Dalton Westfall was selected along with Eastern Illinois’ Brendon Allen as the Ohio Valley Conference Co-Pitchers of the Week, as announced on Monday afternoon.

Westfall improved his record to 4-4 on the year with a 3-1 victory over SIU Edwardsville on Saturday afternoon. The Buckhannon, W.Va. native was dominant on the mound, tossing 8.0 innings without allowing an earned run, while striking out 11 hitters. His overall total of 68 punch outs ranks him first in the conference.

This is Westfall’s second conference award on the year, as the right-hander was also named the OVC Pitcher of the Week back on Feb. 27.

Westfall and the Skyhawks return to action tomorrow night April 25, when they travel to Union. First pitch from Jackson is scheduled for 6 p.m.
