WESTMINSTER, Md. – Zach Jones (Frederick, Md./Tuscarora), a senior on the McDaniel baseball team, has been named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers' Association (NCBWA) National Division III 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 Centennial Conference (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.

Jones was also named the CC Pitcher of the Week and to the d3baseball.com Team of the Week for his outing.

McDaniel returns to action at the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational next week. The Green Terror's eight-game schedule opens with a doubleheader against Daniel Webster on Saturday. The first game of the twinbill starts at 9:30 a.m.
