NWC Student-Athlete of the Week - Pitcher (Mar. 17-23)

Steve Wagar
Puget Sound, Junior
Yakima, Wash./West Valley

Wagar put in his best start of the season Saturday, holding Pacific Lutheran scoreless in 8.1 innings. The start was his longest of his career, the Loggers' longest of the season, and Wagar pitched more than half of the Loggers' longest team shutout since at least 2000. He allowed season-lows in runs and hits against PLU (in starts planned for longer than 2.0 innings) and registered strikeouts for five of six outs in planned 2.0 inning start at St. Martin's March 18.
