LANCASTER, Pa. - Matt Valente has been named the Centennial Conference (CC) Co-Pitcher of the Week for his performance on the mound for the Franklin & Marshall baseball team last week. This is the first weekly accolade of the year for Valente, who shares the honor with Dickinson's Sean White.
Valente twirled a complete-game shutout, fanning a season-high nine batters, in a 2-0 win against Ursinus last Tuesday. The senior lefthander allowed just five hits and did not walk a single batter in his nine innings of work.
The Diplomats (16-12, 5-3 CC) hit the road on Tuesday as they travel to Chestertown, Md. for a CC matchup against Washington College at 3:30 pm.
