ROCK HILL, S.C. - Newberry pitcher Dale Bennett has been named the South Atlantic Conference’s Pitcher of the Week, announced by league officials on Monday afternoon.

Bennett appeared in three of four games for the Indians last week, picking up three wins in 3.1 innings pitched.  The freshman from Summerville, S.C. allowed just three hits and one earned run over three games and picked up back-to-back victories on the same day in a SAC doubleheader against Mars Hill. During the Mars Hill series, Bennett inherited three runners in late innings, none of which scored.

The Player and Pitcher of the Week are voted on by the league’s nine sports information directors.
