Clarkson Duo Earns League Honors
POTSDAM - A pair of Clarkson University athletes earned Liberty League honors for their efforts last week.
CHUDY CITED FOR PITCHING
Junior righthander Bryan Chudy (Goshen, NY) tossed a five-hit shutout last Saturday for the baseball team and was rewarded again on Monday as he was chosen as the Liberty League Pitcher of the Week.
Chudy, who shared the honor with a pitcher from Union, allowed only five hits and walked one batter over seven innings in a 2-0 victory over the Dutchmen. He coupled that with another victory earlier in the week while in Florida, giving up just a single run over four innings. For the week, he had two victories and posted a 0.82 ERA. The complete game shutout was Chudys second career outing of such variety, and it was his sixth complete game overall.
Junior Katie VanDeValk (Baldwinsville, NY) continued her early season scoring outburst this week with 16 total points as she was chosen as the Liberty League Offensive Performer of the Week for the womens lacrosse team.
VanDeValk tallied 13 goals and three assists on the week, pushing her year total to 16 goals and four assists for 20 points, giving her a third-place showing in goals and a fourth-place mark in points in the conference so far. The Golden Knights compete on Tuesday, where VanDeValk looks to score her 100th career point. She enters the contest with 99 points on 81 goals and 18 assists through 31 games.
