By Jeremiah Hergott, Director of Athletic Communications

(Center Valley, Pa. – April 9, 2012) Colgate sophomore Rachel LeCoq was named the Patriot League Pitcher of the Week following her performance in the weekend series against Army. This is LeCoq’s first weekly award this season and fourth in her career.

LeCoq hurled a pair of gems to help Colgate win three of four games against Army and take over second place at 7-1 in the Patriot League. She tossed a pair of complete games, allowing just one run on three hits with seven strikeouts in a 4-1 win on Saturday before pitching a shutout with six hits and seven strikeouts in a 7-0 triumph on Sunday.

LeCoq pitched 17.1 innings in four games for the Raiders last week, allowing only two runs while striking out 15 and posting a 2-0 record in her action. The victory over Army on Sunday gave LeCoq a 4-0 mark in Patriot League play.

Colgate will be back in action on Thursday, April 12 for a doubleheader against Siena. The first game of the twinbill is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. at Eaton Street Field.
