For the second time in three weeks, Citadel senior Austin Pritcher has been named the Southern Conference pitcher of the week.

Pritcher, a right-hander from James Island, threw his second complete game of the season in last Friday’s 7-1 win over College of Charleston. He allowed six hits, walked one and struck out four.

For the season, Pritcher is 7-2 with a 2.40 earned-run average. He was named SoCon pitcher of the month in February and April.
