Just one day after being named the Garden State Athletic Conference Player of the week, pitcher Cody Stashak was named NJCAA Division III pitcher of the week for his performance last Saturday.
For the second year in a row, Cumberland's Stashak opened up the first weekend of the baseball season with a performance that earned him both conference and NJCAA Division III player of the week. Last season, Stashak was earned the honors for his hitting, but this time his performance on the hill turned some heads. Stashak started off the year in what appeared to be mid-season form, going the distance and tossing a no-hitter in the first game of the 2014 campaign. Over seven innings of work, Stashak walked four batters and struck out 8 on the way to an 8-0 victory over Delaware Technical and Community College Saturday afternoon. Stashak, who ended last season with a 6-3 record and a 3.74 ERA, was cruising in the high 80's to low 90's on his way to his first win of the year.
