Coppin State senior pitcher Paige Arnold has been named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week, as announced by the MEAC on April 2.
Arnold led Coppin to a three-game sweep of the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore during the first weekend of April, recording an earned-run average of zero during the game. In 16 total innings, Paige allowed just four hits, no earned-runs while striking out 23 batters.
The Detroit, Mich. native started the three-game series by throwing a no-hitter in the first game, striking out 11 batters in a 7-0 win. It was the third no-hitter of her four-year career. Paige topped the weekend off by also batting well at the plate, hitting a high percentage of .444 with four runs batted in.
Other MEAC players honored this week include Delaware State’s Jordan Reid (Player of the Week) and Norfolk State’s Haley Ward (Rookie of the Week).
Coppin (12-14 overall) will take on another three-game series starting April 6 when they host Howard University in Baltimore.
