Racquel Ward and Anthony Savarino earned Pitcher of the Week honors from the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference following dominant performances for Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) April 24-30.
Ward struck out 13 batters while allowing six hits and no earned runs over 12.1 innings in two games against conference rival Lakeland Community College. Her two victories raised her record to 18-5.

Savarino won his third OCCAC Pitcher of the Week award after throwing a complete-game shutout against Lakeland. He allowed four hits while striking out seven in the victory, which raised his record to 7-0.
The sophomore from Olmsted Falls is working toward an Associate of Arts degree at Tri-C.
The nationally ranked baseball team improved its record to 37-9 while the softball team, now 28-10, clinched the conference championship. Each team plays its home games at Tri-C’s Western Campus in Parma.
