Ketner Tabbed as SAC Baseball Pitcher of the Week
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba’s Blake Ketner (Davidson, NC/NW Cabarrus HS) has been named South Atlantic Conference Pitcher of the Week for the week ending Feb. 24. It was announced by league officials on Monday.
Ketner, a 6-3 junior, tossed eight innings of shutout baseball last week. In a mid-week game with Belmont Abbey, Ketner went an inning of work with no damage then pitched a complete-game shutout against Carson-Newman on Saturday. That win was Catawba’s only SAC victory of the weekend. In that game, Ketner gave up four hits, no runs and no earned runs with two walks and two strikeouts. He is now 2-1 on the year and holds an ERA of 2.16.
Lenoir-Rhyne’s Daniel Ford, a junior third baseman, was named the Position Player of the Week as he helped lead the Bears to a 4-1 record, including a three-game series sweep of future South Atlantic Conference opponent Brevard College. He hit .773 with two homeruns and 14 RBI.
The SAC Player of the Week is determined by a vote of the sports information directors in the league.
