NORFOLK, VA. --Sophomore pitcher Justin Verlander (Goochland, VA.), and freshman pitcher Ricky Shefka (Kinston, NC.) were named CAA Pitcher of the Week and Rookie of the Week respectively.

Verlander, who was voted to the second-team of the Pre-Season Louisville Slugger All-American team, pitched eight and two-thirds innings in ODU's 5-1 victory over Rutgers last week. He allowed one earned run on four hits and five walks while striking out seven Scarlet Knight batters. He pitched 17 straight scoreless innings until allowing one run with two outs in the ninth. Verlander is now 2-0 with a 0.51 ERA.

Shefka pitched ODU to a 5-2 victory over Rutgers last weekend. He allowed two earned runs on four h its and two walks in five innings while striking out three. The game was stopped after five innings due to rain and wet grounds.

The Monarchs host the Red Foxes of Marist in a three-game series beginning today at 3 p.m. Marist was 44-16 last year and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.
