FRISCO, Texas – Abilene Christian sophomore right-hander Garrett deMeyere has been named the Southland Conference Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced Monday.

ACU's deMeyere threw the first nine-inning shutout for the Wildcats in more than nine years as he led the ACU to a 3-0 series-clinching win over Stephen F. Austin on Saturday.

It was the second conference series win this season for ACU, having defeated UIW earlier in the year.

The right-hander from Benbrook, Texas (Southwest Christian H.S.), limited SFA to just four singles while striking out six hitters.

The Lumberjacks only hit .125 against deMeyere, as he improved to 4-4 on the year and lowered his season earned run average to 4.08.
