IRVING, Tex. - After a solid performance on the mound last week, Rice's Zech Lemond has been named a Conference USA Co-Pitcher of the Week for Mar. 18-24, the league office announced Monday (Mar. 24) from its headquarters in Irving, Texas.
Lemond and Southern Miss junior RHP Christian Talley share the honor after both struck out a career-best 12 batters in series-opening wins last Friday night. The C-USA Hitter of the Week award went to Old Dominion senior 1B Josiah Burney, who had three homers and 10 RBI on the road in the Monarchs first conference series win. Lemond won his Friday night start against Florida Atlantic (March 21) with another steady outing in his only mound appearance of the week. The Houston native, who began the season as the stopper before being moved into the rotation, posted a career-high 12 strikeouts in a career-best 8.1 innings vs. FAU. He scattered six singles in and three walks without allowing any runs. Lemond held all opposing hitters to a composite .207 batting average to improve his overall record to 3-0 and lower his ERA to 1.86.
The award is the second-straight C-USA honor for a Rice Owl in as many weeks. On March 17 Rice catcher John Clay Reeves was named the C-USA Hitter of the Week.
The Rice baseball team next plays a road game at the University of Houston on Tuesday night (March 25) before returning back to Reckling Park for a Wednesday game vs. Lamar (March 26). The start time for both respective contests is set for 6:30 pm.
