NORFOLK, VA--Old Dominion University junior righthander Jason Godin (Stafford, VA.) has been named Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week by COLLEGIATE BASEBALL NEWS for the second time this year . He was also named CAA Pitcher of the Week. Godin set a new school record with 18 strikeouts against Northeastern Saturday night.

Earlier this season, on Feb. 18 Godin fanned 17 against Navy, tying former ODU standout Justin Verlander '04 (now pitching with the Detroit Tigers). Godin is 8-0 with a 2.96 earned run average. He has 99 strikeouts in 79 innings and has four complete games with two shutouts.

In the latest national polls, ODU slipped to #20 in COLLEGIATE BASEBALL and #21 in BASEBALL AMERICA. The Monarchs are also 19th in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers poll, and 22nd in the USA TODAY/Coaches poll. Last week, ODU lost at Maryland and took two of three from Northeastern.

ODU travels crosstown to take on Norfolk State in a 6 p.m. contest at Marty Miller field. The Monarchs return to CAA action this weekend at the University of Delaware.
