FAIRFIELD, Conn – Junior right-hander James Cooksey (Norwalk, CT) of the baseball team has been named this week’s Sacred Heart Student Athlete of the Week.
Coming out of the bullpen, Cooksey notched wins in both of Sacred Heart’s victories over Wagner on Sunday afternoon. The Connecticut-native pitched a combined 7.2 scoreless innings in the two games, including four perfect innings to close out SHU’s twelve inning 3-1 win in the series finale. Cooksey currently leads the NEC with a paltry 1.09 earned run average in 49.2 innings.
Cooksey and the Pioneers will finish out their regular season this week with a mid-week game at Quinnipiac and then a four-game series at CCSU over the weekend.
