ROCKFORD, Ill. – Though the Rockford College baseball team finished their 2011 spring trip with a record of 3-4, the efforts of a junior transfer were recognized by the Northern Athletics Conference on Monday.
Jake Nicholson (Stillman Valley, Ill./ Rock Valley CC) was honored as the NAC Pitcher of the Week for his performance. The junior right-hander clinched a 12th inning Regents’ victory over Western New England College with a five inning performance, in which he allowed only one hit while striking out four.
In just two appearances for Rockford thus far, Nicholson has allowed three hits and one earned run in his six innings of work with five strikeouts.
The Regents will return to action on Friday, March 25 when they return to Road Ranger Stadium for three consecutive days of doubleheaders. Rockford will host Bethany Lutheran College on Friday at 2:00 p.m., College of St. Scholastica on Saturday at 3:00 p.m., and Concordia University Moorhead on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
