MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – A day after being named Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Pitcher of the Week, Martin Dewald (Mannheim, Germany) added GCSU Athlete of the Week as announced by the school’s sports information office Wednesday, March 10. This marks the first such award for the Bobcat baseball team this season.
The Bobcat reliever-turned-starter is 3-1 on the season. The righty earned the only win for GCSU in the three-game series against No. 27 North Georgia with a complete game shutout. Dewald scattered seven hits and gave up no walks while striking out 10, setting down the side in order twice and only allowing two hits in an inning once. The senior is now 14th in the PBC in strikeouts.
