Sinclair Community College | Baseball Player of the Week
DeWitt earns his second honor of the season (also did so on Apr. 1). He aided Sinclair’s four-game sweep of Eastern Gateway to close out the regular season at 27-1 in league play. DeWitt recorded a hit in all four contests and drew five walks total for a .643 on-base percentage. He connected on a triple and homerun as well, driving in a pair and scoring six runs.

Edison State Community College | Softball Player of the Week
Hawk picks up her first career OCCAC weekly honor after lifting the Chargers to a 4-0 week. She cracked four extra-base hits, including a cycle in Edison State’s 8-1 win over Owens in Game 1 of a doubleheader. She joins Lexi Long (March 18) as ESCC recipients of this award in 2019.

Cuyahoga Community College | Baseball Pitcher of the Week
Begue is now a four-time OCCAC Pitcher of the Week, acquiring the accolade twice as a freshman and two more times during his sophomore campaign in ’19. For his latest honor, Begue worked a 5-inning complete game vs. Mercyhurst North East. Eighty percent of the put-outs came on strikeouts as he fanned a dozen batters while allowing just one hit and one walk.

Sinclair Community College | Softball Pitcher of the Week
Chastain grabs her third laurel of the year (March 25, Apr. 22). She hurled a 5-inning shutout in the Tartan Pride’s OCCAC regular season championship clinching win over Owens. Chastain faced 17 batters, striking out 15 of them.
