W&L's Laswell Earns Weekly ODAC Award

FOREST, Va. --  Washington and Lee senior righthander Gregg Laswell (Houston, Texas/Memorial) was named the ODAC Pitcher of the Week the league announced Monday afternoon.

Following junior righty Jody Davis' (McLean, Va./Langley) win last week, Laswell becomes the second-consecutive General to be so honored by the conference.
 
He picked up the win in a come-from-behind, 3-2, victory over Hampden-Sydney on Saturday as W&L evened its overall record at 10-10 and improved to 7-3 in the ODAC.
 
Laswell, who took a no hitter into the sixth inning, allowed two runs on three hits and three walks with a career-high 10 strikeouts in 9.0 innings pitched.
 
He has allowed just two total runs in his last six appearances (29.0 IP), surrendering just 10 hits and three walks with 30 strikeouts. On the season, he is 3-1 and leads the ODAC in ERA (1.88) and opposing batting average (.155), while ranking second in strikeouts (40).
 
The Generals return to action on Tuesday when they travel to Eastern Mennonite for a 3:00 pm contest.
