ORONO – Just days after a successful weekend for Maine baseball and softball, two of their top stars were honored by America East.
Pitchers Justin Courtney and Annie Kennedy were named America East Pitchers of the Week, for baseball and softball respectively. They are the first set of awards given out this year.
Courtney dominated for the Black Bears against Ohio University, picking up the decision in a 5-1 win with 7 2/3 innings pitched, while tossing nine strikeouts and allowing just one run.
Meanwhile, Kennedy debuted in the new-look Black Bears rotation, helping Maine win a game and also collecting a save in the process.
