LANCASTER, Pa. – Zach Jones (Frederick, Md./Tuscarora), a senior on the McDaniel baseball team, has been named the Centennial Conference (CC) Pitcher of the Week for the week of Mar. 4-10.

Jones threw a no-hitter to lead the Green Terror (5-2) to earn his second honor in as many weeks. Jones fanned a career-high 12 batters in the team's 10-0 game-one win over Penn State-York. He allowed just one base runner – a fifth-inning, one-out walk – in the seven-inning game. It was McDaniel's first no-hitter since Mar. 14, 2001 and the first in the CC since Mar. 10, 2010.

Jones is now 2-1 on the season with a 2.00 ERA in 18.0 innings of work. He has 28 strikeouts on the year and has thrown 13 consecutive scoreless innings.

McDaniel returns to action at home against Penn State-Harrisburg on Tuesday. Game time is 3:30 p.m.
