Quinnipiac's Schwatzburg Pitcher of the Week

At 12-6 on the season, Quinnipiac's junior softball pitcher Heather Schwartzburg was named the Northeast Conference Pitcher of the Week on Monday.

Schwartzburg picks up her third NEC weekly accolade of the year after leading Quinnipiac to four wins last week, including its first three conference wins of 2011.

After the right-handed junior led the Bobcats to a 7-3 victory over Connecticut, she helped Quinnipiac win three-of-four games in its first weekend of conference play. Schwartzburg pitched two complete games as the Bobcats defeated Mount St. Mary’s, 6-2, and Monmouth, 2-0. She also pitched four innings in the team’s 4-1 win against the Hawks in Quinnipiac’s final game of the week.

Overall, Schwartzburg struck out 22 batters across 24 innings, allowing 12 hits and three runs. She maintained a 0.88 ERA as she improved her record to 12-6 on the year. Currently, Schwartzburg leads the Bobcats with a 1.56 ERA, while holding opponents to a .183 batting average.
